GX7's C-AF up to task of tracking running kids?
Nov 22, 2013

I'm also torn between GX7 and E-M1. I've been using Panny and like the form factor of GX7. One big lure of E-M1, though, is its faster C-AF with PDAF. But since I'm not going to shoot pro sports or motor sports, C-AF fast enough to track running kids will be good enough.

Does GX7 have C-AF that is good enough to track running kids? By way of comparison, with my GH1, I have about 20-30% keeper rate on running kids at a soccer game.
