R1: Which camera is a comparable alternative?

I am looking for a camera comparable to the Sonny R1. I owned the R1 and I like it a lot. I also owned 3 Canon cameras (5D, 30D, and XT or 400D) and 2 two flashes (580EX II and 430EX II flash). My main problem with the Canons is that they underexposed when using flash and I have to tweak the FEC to get a well exposed shot. Most of the time when I'm shooting with flash, I have to keep looking at the screen to make sure that the shot is well-exposed.

On the other hand, Sony R1 never disappoint me when I use flash (Sunpak 383). Every shots is fine and lighting is fine. The only problem with R1 is the dark LCD screen and very slow autofocus.

This is the reason why I am looking for another camera similar to Sony R1. It doesn't have to be Sony. Anyone has an idea? Thanks.
