You will find that there will be slow AF issues outside of the latests Sony A6000, and the equivalent from Olympus the EM1 which can get you to 11fps if you don't care about live tracking. In general situations though you should have no issues with that as you'll find the majority of your shots are from a single point of focus, so it's really irrelevant here. Micro Four Thirds cameras are blistering quick for spot focusing on a single point.

If you're still concerned about AF speed I wouldn't look at anything less than an EM1 or A6000.. If you get the EM1 with the 12-40 F/2.8 you wont need another camera...The issue with the A6000 however is the complete lack of telephoto lenses and the fact that there fastest zooms are rated at F/4.

In a few years as your kids grows up you might find a need to  buy the recently announced 40-150 f2.8 pro lens particularly if they start getting into sports... There are no equivalents for E mount systems. Sure you can mount an A mount lens, but at great expense to camera size and focusing speed.
