Unfortunately I don't own any Panasonic MFT body (only the pocket LF1), so I don't know how they solve the "lack of light vs. AF speed" problem.

As for the shortcut, there are several modes of operation where the frame-rate is automatically switched back to normal even when it's set to fast via menu. "Zoom AF", Art picture modes, iEnhance picture mode, Video mode (can be used for stills shooting with *real* WYSIWYG, but uses 30 fps for Live View constantly). The important part is that frame-rate is only switched back to normal temporarily while you switch the mode, once you switch back frame-rate is switched back to fast, too.

One exception of the latter is when you set focus peaking to any button, this will turn the frame-rate to normal the very moment you change the button, even when focus peaking is switched off.
