However, I've found AF-C to be very reliable with a quick focussing lens, providing you are happy to use spot or zone AF, with just about any AF point in the frame (if the light/lens is right!)

A99ii Eye AF is quite a good party trick but still not on a par with what I have seen from the A9.

Nothing is as good as an A9 - if you want that kind of AF, get an A9 with some E-mount lenses. If you use A-mount, the A99m2 all the way.

Better to track with expandable flexible spot.

You'd really need to have a look at Gary Fong video with A-mount cameras I think.
Focus with center is certainly the best but a bit old school. I think expandable flexible spot is what you want
