It is not impossible to soccer shots, but harder.

I was on the same boat trying to decide which one to buy too. Those were the three I had in mind and after some research, I bought the GF1 as it's suppose to have fast auto focus. I'm selling my canon 50D and 24-105 lens and all my other lenses and going to give these micro four thirds a try. The 50D and 24-105 lens combo is nice but it's too big and heavy to take with me wherever I go and I find myself leaving it at home and just use my cell phone cam =/ now I hardly even touch it anymore. What's good of a good camera if I don't use it. Hopefully I'll be happy with the GF1. I know I'll sacrifice the ISO performance, speed and other stuff from a dslr but maybe with the smaller size and similar picture quality will make me like the micro four thirds =D

you could get a smaller, lighter dslr like the pentax k-x.
