I would like to see comments about shooting action with them and the various longer lenses, compared to the newer Olys and Pannies. My interest is mostly Bifs and Motorsports.

These two simply do not have an advanced focussing system like the GH4 does. They use good CDAF, but not like DFD-good...I had a GH2 and I assume it is about as good as G6 or G5 and it is not good for the action you want to use it with.

Also note that in darker conditions, the GH4 has better IQ, better low light performance so you can bump the SIO up more with still getting good IQ whereas the other two fall apart a bit sooner.
