But is this a surprise? G9 does that too.

GH5M2 and PL1260 at 42mm CAF single area + and human detection

Burst rate M Shutter priority 1/640 ISO 800

First set the camera is almost always able to detect a face or a body

Second situation a bit more complicated

Camera seems to have missed a few prediction but all shots were in focus

I think the video AF is more of a concern. With the G9 what you saw in the EVF was distracting and looked OoF but the pics were in focus. Where G9 struggled was with less contrasty backgrounds in stills and until FW 2.4 (but even with it if you go to 24 fps) especially in video. So it would be nice to see how video AF works. But good this works fine too.

I love it when companies do something different and Pansonic doing this with what is basically CD-AF is just great. But it needs to get better still, it simply needs to be on par with nikon OSPDAF or Sony for that matter I think.

Thanks for sharing!
