A sharp answer:

When I need a fill-flash I use my Olympus E-PL1, with (its) EVF, since I have it.

Sony NEX-5n is the almost perfect camera, but the lack of a built in flash makes me think of the NEX-6 or NEX-7 (or even NEX-F3) at times: but on the other hand I saw the latter cameras in a store, and they are bulkier than the svelte, and lovely, 5n; and what's more they do not have the gorgeous touch screen of the very 5n.

There's no such thing as a free lunch, I guess.

I was wondering how people deal with this. I use flash indoors very infrequently, but I sometimes find it useful as fill outside. Do you swap out the EVF every time you need to use flash or perhaps rely on PP to lighten up poorly exposed areas where fill flash would have been useful so the lack of a built in flash isn't an issue?
