AF speed Oly 50-200mm SWD 4/3 lens + Oly E-M1 body (Mark I or II)

(I posted this thread in the m4/3 forum and got a few rather positive answers. Maybe here are some more people who can contribute?)

I'm contemplating to add a used 4/3 Oly 50-200mm SWD lens (+MMF-3 Adapter) to the Panasonic 35-100 f2.8 which is my standard tele zoom lens for my E-M1 and always in my bag. That's for those use cases when 100mm is just not enough, which may include daylight sports if the E-M1 II proves to be up to the task once I'll get one next year.

So here is my question to anybody who has used this lens with an E-M1 body, be it Mark I or Mark II: How do you find continuous AF speed and accuracy with this lens, especially as compared to the Olympus 40-150mm or Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8 lenses?

And how would you rate image quality, compared to those?

Thanks for any input!
