PS - I think both the E-M5 and GH3 focus faster than many DSLRs in SAF/AFS

Want to try that again without using acronyms? Mirrorless/EVIL cameras need good light to focus in a timely manner, and accurately.

I'm not sure what mirrorless cameras you have used recently, but the current M43 are fast and very accurate even in low light.  I just took the GH3 into an unlit room, and it instantly locked focus on some curtains at the far end of the room, no hunting, no bother.

Earlier generations were not as fast and would hunt, but recent iterations are very good (Panasonic may have a very slight edge in very dark situations, from what reviewers have said, but it is not a giant difference).  M43 in general has gotten ahead of the curve in terms of its mirrorless competition, too,  in this area....
