Hi, I currently have a NEX 7, which I use mostly for family travel, for other purposes I have a canon 6D.

I love the NEX grip/and compact size, the panoramas or twilight modes for snapshots when the only available lens is the kit. But I have a huge amount of out of focus pictures, due to the AF not being fast enough for my kids.

Do you think the NEX6, will be better at it? or the next, NEX?

Or should I switch systems? I just have one native lens, the kit.

Thank you

Make sure that you run the latest FW.

I am using a Nex-6 mostly now for this very same reason. I do get more keepers (can use multi AF mode).

But I would wait for the next Nex, it is rumored to improve the ospdaf dramatically.

Meanwhile, consider the SEL35F18. You'll get more keepers this way too, especially under low light.
