I measured it.
How? Measuring ESR takes some specialised equipment and thorough metrologic methods.

I have an ESR meter and a cheapish component tester which does ESR as well.
But as you beat me to it  I quickly took some measurements of a few Wima MKS2 6,8uF and they were all around 0,4 Ohm. I have no 10uF here at the moment.
But I remember very well the bag of 10uF Wimas I measured and all were around 17 Ohm. I remember it because the value was so high. That made me think that they are all in the same ballpark. Obviously a bad batch. I stand corrected. Good to know....

So does this mean these film/foil /wima caps are in fact good to use for power supply bypassing??

over dozens of measurements, I see just the opposite. That’s in line with the datasheets that are available also.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.
