I just bought a D3100 to see how it compares to the GH2. It hasn't arrived yet. If AF tracking on the lower end bodies sucks, why is everyone always talking about how you can't rely on mirrorless CDAF for the best results and you should get a DSLR? I am confused.

Sports photographers, wildlife photographers, etc. usually shoot with higher end DLSRs for C-AF. CDAF isn't as good as PDAF for C-AF and low end bodies tend not to be as good as higher end bodies for C-AF.
