I'm just curious... Why use auto focus for a talking head interview? I've shot 100s of interviews with the C300 Mkii for years and now the C70. I would never do that, simply for the fact that it can be unreliable. I suppose if you're shooting on a gimbal or the person is moving around, or a unmanned camera, but a traditional interview I always have focus on manual. 

I could never work without NDs or XLR though. Kind of the number one selling point with the C70.

I do the same. I know everyone loves the shallow DOF look for interviews, but I'd rather give up a little of that than risk AF. I tend to stick around the F2.8 or F3.5 mark when I'm shooting interviews to give me some wiggle room. My main focus is getting the subject as far away from the background as possible and if that's just not possible then its just not going to be as out of focus.

I'll push it to f2.8 on a 70 - 200 tight or f2 on a 50mm on wide in manual mode. Of course you need to monitor the camera, but with a decent monitor this isn't a huge problem. f/1.8 on a full frame sensor is a whole different story.
