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!

Those shots are nice, but you could do that with a Nikon D300 six years ago.

" most of the event photographers I bump into need a working distance of a least 20 feet using autofocus..."

I'll let you 2 battle this out.  I'll just say that the GH4 works very well at much less than 20 feet and I am sure some other cameras do too.
