Seeing through viewfinder on bright sunny day

Hi, I have a Sony NEX 7 which I am just starting to use.  I was hiking yesterday in the desert on a bright sunny day.  When I was taking pictures at times I could not see anything through the viewfinder.  I wasn't pointing the camera directly at the sun.  By moving the camera around I could see so I know the viewfinder is workin- just doesn't seem to like bright light.  I was just wondering if this is a common problem with the viewfinder or if there was some setting I could adjust etc.

thanks,

Marsha
