Mine is a G7 with 7mm - 44mm F/2.8-4.8 lens. So I'm wondering people saying you get a shallow DOF when you zoom in generally valid only for fixed aperture zoom lenses?

It's just that you only compare wide open. Put it on f/5.6 or so for both extremes and you will be able to see the difference (taking into account the other conditions that influence DOF)
