I do not want to handhold a DP style camera with a 70-200mm lens, with a 120-300mm lens etc. that even with no viewfinder. How can one mange to handheld such a system?

Absolutely! I have briefly used a NEX 5 with a telephoto zoom attached. I was unbalanced and ungainly in the extreme. ‚ÄčIt was almost impossible to handle without pressing buttons I didn't intend to. I hated it.

I regularly use a 5N with a 200mm prime lens (Nikkor f/4). It works fine.

Admittedly you can accidentally press the Movie button, but this can happen with any lens on the 5N. It is simply bad placement.
