Help with camera selection

I recently sold my Nikon D3100 as I was looking for a camera that did better video as I like to shoot stills and video of my sons sports, the video of the D3100 is very poor. On the other hand, the video from my wife's Canon S100 is fine, but I don't want to carry/use two cameras.

I was planning on the Sony NEX-6 but I tried one yesterday and it will not work for me. Due to disability my hand function is limited and a DSLR works much better for me. The guy at the camera store recommended a Canon T4i with its continual focus in video; I did handle the T4i while there and just like my prior DSLR's, I could easily handle it better than the Sony.

My question for the masses is two parts, 1) thoughts on the T4i and 2) any others I should consider?

Thank you,
