Can you recommend a 3rd party viewfinder?

I have a Pentax K-01, do a lot of scenics, and have trouble seeing the image in very bright sunlight. I see quite a few viewfinders that attach over the screen, but invariably have negative reviews. Anyone out there have tried one on a K-01 that they are very happy with?

Hi! Yes, I have buyed (used, from 'bay) this type: LCDVF VIEWFINDER KINOTEHNIK (for 4/3 CANON 1D MkIV, 5D MARK II MkII, 7D). It has a frame you have to stick to the body - the viewfinder itself has some magnets and can be attached easily. It is made from high quality materials and works well. The frame on the body is not getting in the way when you don't use the viewfinder.

I also have a viewfinder. Basicly they are all about the same. 3 inch magnifiers, like you where watchting stamps in your collection.
