Other cameras still focus faster and c-af is not great.

I am sure all the recent new Nex cameras and lenses must be pretty depressing for Everdog, the guy who has been predicting the death of Nex for 2 years.

Nex's PDAF doesn't have to focus "faster" than M4/3. They just have to track better than M4/3 in AF-C mode. Who cares if EM5 can focus faster by 50 ms or whatever than Nikon D4? It still sucks for tracking objects moving towards the camera.

Even funnier, with Sony now making the MFT sensors, as well as many other Milc and Dslr sensors, all systems will get the same hybrid focus solution.

So Sony Nex innovation keeps MFT alive...

There is a reason why Everdog, and the MFT guys, seem absent lately.
