Lumix S5 users: is tracking AF really bad?

I had a hand on S5 in a shop few months ago during a short trip. It was very comfortable in hand and has many good features on paper. However, many comment on a below average tracking AF.

The camera is not present in my area and if I want it I must order it online. I used Lumix P&S LX7   for many years  and it was excellent for what it is. I also liked the menus and botton layout of the Lumix.

I like to photograph moving objects like my children and some BIF but also portraits, family and travel. I also want to get into video.

As nothing compares to actual use, I would like to know the experience of S5 users about the AF in general and tracking in particular.

My other choices are the normal competitors: sony A7iv, canon R6 and nikon z6ii. They are more expensive but available in my area

Thanks
