Advice for video with NEX-7

I want to visit an air show this weekend using a 70-400 and NEX-7 wiht either EA1 or EA2 adapters.

Pictures and some videos is my desired goal.

I have quesiton about video and EA2. The airshow will be in the afternoon in bigth daylight. Is there a way to make NEX-7 keep shutter speed below 1/100 and close aperture as needed with EA2 and autofocus?

I hope closing down aperture with manual focus is not a problem with EA series adapters.

Any hints or idea will be appreciated. I am renting the lens and do not have properly sized ND filters for it. I could use the 70-210/4 with ND4 or ND8 filter but it does not have the reach and focusing capability of the 70-400.

Needless to say I do not feel very confident in handling zoom, manual focus and panning at the same time
