Follow Focus with Stedicam

I'm shooting a romantic film and I want to use a stedicam to follow actors around the apartment as they argue,during a walk in the park, around the table while they are at dinner,etc.

My question is : Will I have to operate follow focus with the stedicam? I'm using the Canon C300 Mark II and with its autofocus,I'm hoping that I do not have to worry about manual follow focus.

If you follow them around you would not need it.

Get a 35mm or 50mm lens at f/8 (full frame, adjust for crop frame accordingly). Set the focus once and keep the same distance to your actors.
