for dslr there are many videos and tutorial step-by-step how to remove it, and it doesn't look that hard to do, so i presume mirrorless won't be much harder. I haven't checked any video for mirrorless yet, but i can find cheap nex for under 200$ used, or A6000 for under 350$, with a some kit lens.

I still don't get it how can you do hand-held IR photos without removing the filter , as it blocks way too much IR.

High ISO, fast lens and stabilisation! Not ideal.

I'm looking for hand-held low iso/high speed options. That's the reason i'm looking forward to conversion. Otherwise i already have 850nm filter and tripod, i  can do few min exposures at low ISO.
