Re: NEX-6 and indoor sports?

I can't speak about the NEX 6 because I'm waiting for the DPReview review before purchasing it.  I've shot a lot of high school basketball with my 7D and 50mm f/1.4 lens, however, and find it ideal for two reasons:  first, the lens is wide enough that I can crop for better composition if desired, and second, and more importantly, what I see through the viewfinder and what I see with my left eye are essentially the same size, and by keeping both eyes open it's much easier to follow the action and plan my shots than with any other focal length lens.  As both cameras have APS-c sensors I assume that this would also be the case with the NEX 6.
