Hi Emmanuel, 

In my experience X-OCN XT is absolutely sufficient for any type of VFX work, especially when shooting 5.7K. Depending on the type of VFX work and your delivery format(s), X-OCN ST will even be good enough for a lot of different types of VFX work. For instance, if you don't have to pull incredibly specific keys, aren't shooting in extreme low-light conditions and you're not finishing for Dolby Cinema, there's a good chance that ST will do the trick for most shots. That being said, I would recommend to discuss with your VFX vendor what their experiences with the various X-OCN levels are and what their preference would be for this specific production. Maybe even run some tests to see when XT is really beneficial over ST. In my experience it really depends on the type of work done and your shooting conditions.  
As far as I know there are no reasons left to shoot RAW SQ on a Sony Venice. I've never tested them against each other but have also never seen that X-OCN XT didn't have enough information to get the job done. 

Best,
