 A few questions about full automatic oboes

Hello Oboe friends, i want to know if there are any full-auto oboe players here, i have a few questions for you! (semi automatic oboe players give me your opinion too)
-first, do you use the german fingerings for middle C# to middle D#? (with these fingerings you don´t use the half hole you just lift the the index altogether)
-if so, do you use it all the time or just as a resourse for some passages where it´s more convenient? (by all the time i mean all the time, practicing all 12 keys using these fingerings, maybe with the exception of sluring the same note from the octave below upwards as it sounds more precise,like in the solo from Don Juan)
-what´s the highest note you can play without using the teeth and what´s the highest note using them? (maybe if you can share those fingerings that would be great!) mine is altissimo Bb6 and C7 using the teeth
-Would you go back to playing a semi automatic oboe or do you think that would be a downgrade?
I ask all this because i´ve been recently changing my fingerings for middle C# to D#, i´m re-learning all 12keys using the german fingerings, i feel it´s way more fluid than the more common fingerings especially when playing things outside the regular oboe repertorie like some jazz tunes
I think the combination of the automatic octaves + german fingerings for middle C# to D# makes the oboe much more agile and easy.
let me know your opinion!
