Hi JStar,
It's a good camera for taking photo of fast moving objects. I would like to however note when doing very up close range focusing, it has some difficulty focusing.

The NEX 6 its quite good in this matter. It has a fast up to 10fps speed due to mirroless system. I would suggest to looking in to a diffrent lenses than the kit lens. The Carl Zeiss f1.8 its a great combination of both worlds even have a manual focus. How ever if you need to shoot a professional baseball game you need DSLR with a big lens. Overall this was a great purchase for me for traveling. At the moment the NEX 6 is the leader in image quality, focusing speed and usability overall. Its a clear winner in mirroless at this moment.

It's fine for baby photos *BUT* like most mirrorless cameras you need enough light to let the phase detect focus system work, and to use a fast enough shutter speed to stop the action. I would never use this camera to shoot sports professionally, although it does fine for family shots. But for baby photos, yes this camera will work great. Consider a fast prime lens (the Sony SEL20F28 or the SEL35F18) for better image quality in low light.

Yes. It has 10 frames per second. That's more that most standard dslr in the market.

NO. Not at all. But has the fastest autofocus among the Sony NEX family.

10fps is great for fast moving object where focusing is fixed, like at infinity. Up close, forget about it.
