FZ150 5.5fps with AF, how good?

Since I already have an SX40 which for most of my superzoom purposes is an excellent camera, I essentially bought the FZ150 in the hopes that its fast focus, particularly the 5.5fps wi AF mode, would allow me to capture even better shots of my boys playing soccer and running. And it may, but I can't tell, because apparently the sun is not going to shine here before the FZ200 is released. Today, for instance, I got some parentally usable shots of my cross-country guy in the rain at 800 iso. The camera appears to have tracked him pretty well, but I can't tell how well, because ISO 800 to get 1/200 kind of sucks the crispy out of detail with a tiny sensor.

So - show me some tracking bursts in sunlight! Julio, where are you man? Gary S, don't you like tracking bursts? LTZ, no sunny soccer in Texas?
