As some said, you do not want to use it the same way as other lenses. For this, when used indoors, do not use AF-C as it will hunt.

On Pany bodies (the OP has a G3), the lens is not even allowed to enter AF-C as far as I know. My G1 doesn't allow it and I think later Pany bodies behave similarly.

Use AF-S, focus, lock, refocus, lock, etc … I use it to photograph my two toddler boys with no problem. Love the focal length, not too wide, not too long and it is a sharp lens.

No problem agreeing with any of that.
