Focusing speed and dof are key when photographing kids. Olympus lags in the continuous autofocus speed area. The single focus works beautifully on the newer bodies. If you want to rattle out shots and let the camera decide what to do Sony is better. If you want to pick a focus point such as the eyes Olympus does great. The touch screen can be amazing in that you can click on any point and it will focus and take a photo there.

The other part is dof. I really like the micro four thirds dof more because if you have a fast lens like the pl 25 1.4 you can shoot wide open have a higher ISO that's clean and therefore fast shutter speed. Yet the photos have enough dof for most of the face to be in focus. If you do choose micro then I recommend em10 + pl 25 + olympus 45. That's a killer portrait setup.
