I find the XP1 focuses fast enough - not DSLR fast but certainly adequate with the 35mm f1.4. With the new 18-55mm zoom it is faster still and silent too.

Have you tried a single shutter focus/press technique i.e. no half press just a smooth roll-over press of the shutter button. Most of the XP1 action shots you see are taken that way but I think the EVF lag tends to make users wait for focus re-confirmation instead of going for it.
