I shoot sports video and have always attempted to shoot stills through the same lens at the same time and the J1 seemed as thouigh it might fit the bill
I'm at a figureskating competition at the moment and Have compared the af tracking of the J1 to my main sports video camcorder the HDR-cx550v by Sony.
Its hard to be certain because the sonys screen is so much better but it also seems that the sony's ability to acquire focus is considerably quicker than the J1 shooting through the 10-100 power zoom

The camcorder will have a smaller sensor and a shorter actual focal length lens, so will have a larger depth of field than your J1. This makes it easier for it to nail the focus, although it may also just be very good at it!
