The focus difficulty you have with a SLR are non-existent on a mirrorless camera like a NEX - whether or not you need/want an eye-level viewfinder.

I use only MF lenses on my NEX-5, I have absolutely no problem focusing any of them.

Exactly. If you want to focus manual glass, no need for NEX-7 or GXR Leica module, NEX-5 would do just fine.

And in sunny weather? This summer, vacating in Istria and Losinj, using a Sony HX5 with LCD only was a lot of guessworking. Having to be manual focusing on screen only as well would have been impossible.

I know the Nex-screen is better ... but stil!
