I believe it when I see it. I have a G5 and have/had several Nikon DSLRs. I believe the GH3 can actually focus faster than a DSLR...on static subjects. Even the G5 is remarkably good at that, specially the accuracy is really good.

But with anything moving fast I had better results with any DSLR, no matter how basic, so the GH3 really had to come a long way to be better than a DSLR at that.

Of course, it's always possible, and I truly hope it is. If it is, I'm getting one, that's the only thing missing in m4/3 bodies to make them perfect for me. But until then, I'll just live with the G5 alongside my Nikon DSLR.
