Does canon EF 24/70 work with C100 Dual Pixel AF

So I want to upgrade from my 5D MKII to the C100 but I've heard conflicting statements about the new duel pixel auto focus working with my trusty Canon 24/70 lens, can anybody shed some light on this? Thanks much!

The EF 24-70 f2.8 L along with all my other L series lenses works with my C300 dual pixel AF. Don't know about C100. However, I can't think of any reason why it shouldn't work.

Yes, it works great. Nearly all EF lenses will work with the DAF. The main factors for the speed of the Dual-Pixel AF are brightness, (f/2.8 lenses usually result in faster AF) and the STM motor, which is designed to take full advantage of the continuous AF technology. But a lot of the STM lenses are lower end consumer lenses. I hope that info was helpful.
