Handheld Focus Bracketing: EM1 MK2 vs G9

Will either of these cameras focus bracket fast enough for handheld bracketing. They are both fast enough for exposure bracketing handheld but for focus bracketing the lens must be moved mechanically. I've read that the peak speed for the G9 is about 5-6 fps.

I was getting ready to buy the G9 until I read about the slow focus bracketing even with the camera set to 60 fps. My son's Fuji X-T3 works well at 20 FPS with the 18-55 lens though perhaps not with one of the larger lenses.

Does anyone know how these bodies compare for this function? I'd be using the Oly 12-100 and Pany 100-400. Could replace the 12-100 with the 12-200 if that would work significant faster.
