G9/GH5 Users: Are You Happy With AutoFocus?

Looking for some real world feedback. I am considering the Panasonic S1 (I know separate forum) and one of the big negatives seems to be the DFD autofocus - specifically in continuous shooting/video.  I see references to pulsing, etc.

As the G9/GH5 use the same type of autofocus I am wondering how satisfied you are in the real world? Is the lack of phase detecting overblown? Is DFD sufficient? I know a lot of users focus manually and that mitigates the issue but I probably would not use manual focus a lot.

Any thoughts are appreciated.  Thanks!
