after selling my sony A57 and ordering an A77, which has been 'lost' between dispatch and delivery; Sony failing to even check with the warehouse as to tracking etc, i really might ditch Sony.

I am impressed with the K01, to say the least. Is there an OVF available for it? My only gripe being screen visibility in bright conditions. (im in the UK)

I could splash for a K5/ii/s but i do like live view and peaking.

The k-30 might be the camera for you. It has an optical viewfinder and focus peaking. It is pretty cheap too, at least in the USA. There is no EVF for the k-01.
