"unlike my FZ200, I can AF focus and zoom with the GH3 in HD instead of the FZ200's limited 720P where you can't autofocus during filming"

Not true, it's just that the AF of the FZ200 is relatively slow to respond in video mode.  Just don't zoom in/out at a dizzying speed.  If you set CONTINUOUS FOCUS = ON in the Motion Picture menu and let the AF execute its feedback loop, the focus of the camera will be maintained while you zoom.  I just tried it on my FZ200 to confirm and it worked just fine in both 720p and 1080p.
