This is a good assessment by Thom and mirrors (pun intended) my own thinking.

As an Olymus fan, I think he should have given Olympus an honorary mention in the fastest AF because technically Oly is faster with the kit lenses, but I agree the Nikon has the best overall AF if you take in CAF and tracking.

Perhaps more information is required about the AF comparison. The EM5 is the fastest when it comes to multi-area AF when using the kit lens. But the Nikon is quicker for single area. Its all a bit unimportant because for AF both are fast enough!

So other performance criteria become more important, like time between shots and if you can fire another shot immediately after shooting a series of shots and waiting for the write to card. On this criteria, the Olympus wins hands-down.

Given the overall speed of the EM5 it is surprising it didn't get a mention.
