According to this review. I don't know how reliable they are though.

Because the AF system is significantly improved in comparison with its predecessors, the GH4 can also follow moving subjects very well, and it is thus also more suited for sport and action photography. Read about this in our earlier article about the continuous AF of the Panasonic GH4. It's still no D4s from Nikon or EOS 1D X from Canon, but it's in the neighborhood.

If what this reviewer is saying is true, that it's actually "in the neighborhood," then this is the single biggest improvement over the GH3 (for stills shooters). If this camera can be used for action sports, well, that's something.
