G3 does not need a fast lens to be much better than FZ200 anyway.

It still needs a fast lens if the goal is low light sports; pumping up the ISO alone won't cut it.

Even at f/5.6 it is still at least a stop ahead of FZ200. FZ200 unfortunately has not very small but also very bad sensor for low light. Yes, with a cheap f/4-f/5.6 tele lens you will be shooting at ISO6400+, but it is still immensely better than FZ200 at ISO 3200. Something like very cheap Oly E-PM2 even better.
