Well, I hope they get it to a good spot. If you read closely, though, he said that the EOS-M with 18-55 was close to the OM-D with the 20/1.7. So, acceptable, but not fast. The 20/1.7 is one of the slowest focusing lenses available for m4/3. Put the 45/1.8 or 12/2, or Leica 25/1.4, or even the kit zooms, and you'll see that speed increase dramatically on the OM-D (and I think that Panasonic's AF is even better than the OM-D's, especially in dim light).
While I'm not really in the market to switch, I think that good competition in this space is a good thing. It will really push the innovation for all parties. I think that the threat of the NEX is what finally pushed Olympus to get in bed with Sony on the sensor side, and to really push their tech on the IS side. Panasonic's video work has pushed all the other players to really try and step up their game on the video side.
Of course, then there's Nikon...which...well, really haven't done much.
