Focus tracking of the Panasonic DMC-GH4

I have enjoyed using the Panasonic DMC-GH3 for about 9 months. Love the light weight of the body and great lens. Except for wildlife trips, I have been able to leave the heavy Nikon D800 and D3s gear at home. However, there is one shortfall and that is the ability to capture flying birds. Will the new GH4 be able to properly track flying birds? I would buy the GH4 just for this feature.

Re: Focus tracking of the Panasonic DMC-GH4

Almost something I think you'd need to try and see for yourself. It has a better EVF and refreshes twice as fast if I remember correctly compared to the GH3, so I'm sure it would be improved to some extent, but will it be enough for you?

I found that I could in fact capture birds in flight with my GH3, (45-150 lens),which is exactly what I could NOT do with my NEX 7. Couldn't even focus fast enough to capture whales breaching.
