Lack of phase detection type auto focusing (which can track moving subjects), is the biggest shortcoming with m4/3 cameras of today that still use the antiquated CDAF focusing system found in pocket cameras. I just visited Disneyland and saw a lot of DSLRs (mostly Nikon), but heard at least one owner of a m4/3 camera curse it for not being able to focus their kid on a ride. Luckily I had a Nikon V1 with on-sensor PDAFthat works great for for focusing on fast ¬†moving subjects, so no worries for me!¬†

Chances are, that person would have cursed the camera regardless. Chances are, I could have taken the same image with manual focus as I do most of the time (when using my NEX).
