At that distance DOF is 3m. Hardly challenging. Show long focal length with wide open aperture and get closer. That will easily overwhelm GH.

First you made an incorrect statement about f/11

Speaking in FF equivalent. f/5.6 is no challenge at that FL. Try 400mm f/5.6 and see GH fumble.

Now you make another incorrect statement as the camera focus point is moving with the red dot so depth of field changes.

Changes, a little. The DOF so deep it matters little.

While in the far away shot it can go as far as 5-6 meters in the near shots where the distance is less than 4 meters the depth of field is one and half meter

No. At 4m, DOF is 3.3m at that FL. Everything in focus.

And lastly you don't know anything about the camera but you think you can predict what it does

I think this is enough in the ignore list from now on

Ignoring the truth will not prevent you from reaching false conclusion. If you want to test how well CAF engine work, do something that requires it to work.

Depth of field at 4 meters 42mm 5.6 is 1.58 meters

at 7 meters it was 5.28

My 3.3m estimate was correct. Between 1.6 and 5.3. Which means everything in focus.

f/1.2 at 4 meters would only have 30 cm DOF and only an idiot would shoot a burst of anything moving in those conditions.

Idiots shoot sports? Interesting. Why are you afraid to try? Many cameras do this with success. If "new CAF engine works well" as you suggest then show it.

You are making confusion between the focal length and crop factor and the aperture so if you were using f/11 you would need to use 84mm not 42mm. Basic errors create misconceptions

84mm f/11 and 42mm f/5.6 are same AOV on FF and M43.

If you want to test how well CAF engine work, do something that requires it to work.  This appears to be a fluff piece to promote favorite brand.
