NEX6 vs. NEX3n - How big a deal is Hybrid AF for moving targets and video?

Hello,

I'm in the marketing for either the NEX6, 3n, or the Fuji XM-1.  Not getting into the Fuji vs. NEX debate just yet... I'd like to ask for opinions on the NEX6 vs. NEX3n.  I don't care about EVF, or the loss of a hotshoe....between the 6 and 3n,

BUT I do plan on using this cam for *some* action shots (reasonable expectations of course) and this will also be my full time 'camcorder'.  So I have 2 questions:

1) How much of a difference does the Hybrid AF on the NEX6 make for moving targets / action shots?

2) How much of a difference does the Hybrid AF on the NEX6 make for AF during video?

3) Any other major differences I should worry about?

THANKS ALL!
