Question about the Subcompact-alphas

Serious questions:

1. Are displays really good enough to use in bright light (sunny day) and evaluate critical focus?

2. How do you hold and use the camera with the large zoom lenses shown?

My only experience is with older cameras where I find the display essentially unusable in sunshine, and had to use EVF or optical VF.

I can see using these as 'party cameras' with pancake wide angle and normal lenses, but people are calling for A-mount adapters, and I don't see how they would be used? (And that's not even thinking about attaching the 300 f/2.8 with an adapter)

Thanks
Tom
