I shoot martial arts using lensbabys and this is one of the fastest sports going, most of the event photographers I bump into need a working distance of a least 20 feet using autofocus...

Wow, I find this thread amusing and refuse to claim a GH4 can compete with $6000 DSLRs, but the GH4 C-AF autofocus is really good at short distances.  For these I was less than 20 feet away with and F/2.8 lens and my only problem was keep the dog in the frame because he likes to zig and zag (and he crashes into you too).   I doubt people are moving anywhere near this fast. 

Now think of awesome 4K video and 96FPS video would be for martial arts close up with this kind of tracking!
