Re: Choosing between Nikon D5200 or Sony NEX6

in your situation I would get a dslr rather than a nex .. The only reason for a nex is compactness, and once you get outside the limited ois primes (<50mm)  you are in to big bulky n heavy dark zooms that fill the e-mount range So really you loose the size advantage over a small dslr

when you get in to low light, indoors without flash or fast moving kids then the poor nex AF is an issue dslrs don't have

once you get in to other areas -shooting kids in theatre, sport etc then the lack of bright tele lenses really kills the e-mount .. same with macro .. Same with bright medium tele. .. Same with long tele  etc and the nex to alpha adapter has no OIS so limits its usefulness.
