I work a lot outside on documenting. Sometimes going from full eye-burning sunlight to complete shadows within a minute.
I used a Panasonic AG-AF100 for the last year until an evil robber stole it from my house (lucky robber...) Now I've seen this new NEX-EA50 and I'm interested but my question is-
How do you get by without built in ND filters? Without the time to unscrew an ND filter from your lens and screw-in a different one?
A variable ND filter. Essentially two circular filters together that screw onto the front of the lens and when turned they gradually block out more and more light. You can get the cheap ones and the expensive ones. If you're serious, go for the latter and the former if not. You can also buy step up/down rings so the one filter can fit a number of cameras.
