So I need good AF.I also quite like a bit of context (room / background) in my photos and am often interacting with the kids whilst shooting, so I like wider lenses. This is where I am finding trouble with the NEX system as they are awesome in good light but since I can't really afford the 24mm Zeiss I'm basically out of options. I generally shoot candid snaps of my family (kids) and friends and it's often indoors in lowish light and they're often in motion (read as - I want fast lenses).
The camera isn't your problem .You want to be a photographer, but you mostly do family shots ?
If you want to make family shots look good, you might want to study the masters .Or just get a decent P&S, or a DSLR if you need the tech advantage .
Large-ish sensor mirrorless isn't made for snapshots, and for snapshots anything will do, once you get used to it .
