The site never said what the OP said.

I will say the GH4 for me is performing better than any DSLR I've used (never owned a D4 or 1D) and that includes tracking and in very low light. I encourage everyone to judge for themselves.

OK, I thought it was me. I just received mine (GH4) today and will put it through its paces this weekend. One think struck me as strange, though. Some reviewers said the shutter was loud. I just don't hear that, at all. It sounds very quick and solid. In fact, the response time seems (gut feel) to be much better than the GH3. It's a quick camera.

The shutter sounds normal and solid as you say. It is nowhere near loud. If you want perfectly Silent, the GH4 offers that too.

Please try the tracking and focus speed in low light, and let us know what you find. You need a good Panasonic lens, but my bet is you will be very pleased.

I'll try the "cyclist" test this weekend using the 35-100 2.8. I'm still playing with the settings, but by then I should be fine with the new AF system.

The only drawback right now is lack of Adobe camera raw support. Silkypix is, well...
