Have you tried either the GH2 or the G5 with an Oly 75-300?  If not, then you are not equipped to make such a definitive statement as you have.  I don't see how having PDAF would have improved the following photos?

1st 2 with GH2+75-300, and last one with G5 +75-300.

Thanks for posting.  I edge ever closer to the G5 and the BIF issue is the only real stopper now that she who must be obeyed has sanctioned the spend.

I will keep emphasising that I do not expect the BIF performance of a high end DSLR and HG glass but I do expect it to be at least as good as I get from my E620 and 70-30.  The way I see it is that yes EVFs are a bit of an issue but there should be some compensatory factors from much better ISO performance and the acclaimed fast focusing.
