Re: what is the best m43 for focus tracking?

In their review of the OM-D http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympusem5/ they said in the conclusion under Cons "Focus tracking distinctly unreliable". They've not yet posted their review of the GH3.

Contrast-detect AF (most mirrorless cameras) seems to be inherently worse for tracking than phase-detect AF (DSLRS). On the other hand no worries about front focus or back focus.

I believe one or more mirrorless cameras has a hybrid PDAF/CDAF approach -- but since I don't do BIFs I've never been much concerned. My (now sold) EOS 7D has a very exotic AF with various settings to optimize tracking under different situations.
