GH3 at the Portugal Open 2013.

12-35 2.8 / 45 1.8

All the pictures where croped and litle photoshop retouched.

The 12-35 is sharp, focus fast and is more acurrate then my old Canon 24-70.

I'm sorry but this just makes me laugh.

If by "shoot sports" you mean it can take a picture in the direction of someone playing sports, then you are right.

The entire picture is in focus in most of the shots, so who needs AF anyway.

The lighting is good enough for a decent shutter speed even on an iPhone.

If you can clearly see the faces of the fans, it is not a sports shot, it is just a snap shot..

If you want background seperation at a long focal length, you need a FF camera with a 2.8 lens at 200mm or more.

This is through a chain link fence, with a 5 year old DSLR. Show me a mirrorless shot anywhere close to having this much background seperation that is this sharp, through a fence and 90 feet away.

You are arguing that you can hunt bears with a bb gun. Although you technically could, you wouldn't be wise (or successful).
