As a user of higher end Nikon FF gear { D2x,D3s,D3x} and with mFT { GF1,GH2,GH3,E-M1 * GX7}.The S-AF speed of mFT bodies is spectacular, where better DSLR's outperform mFT is in C-AF/ tracking and in lower light.When you see the pro photography pits at the biog sporting events filled with mFT gear that is when mFT will outperform DSLRs

Though if slow moving or static shooting in decent light are your priority then , honestly what camera modern is not fast enough

I have not see a sign of the GH4 in your reply, why not?

PLEASE

I do not yet have the GH4 we have heard numerous claims from all the mFT boides in the last couple of years regarding C-AF , tracking and low light alas testing dos not confirm this at all.  While I am very keen on video and it looks amazing. as I am also a still shooter I was hoping for a step forward in image quality unfortunately it looks to be much the same as all the other current mFT cameras give or take a fraction of a stop. So though the video is tempting ( very !} I think I will hold off this time.
