I understand your concerns living in sunny Australia.  I think you would adapt to using a screen and it may enhance your Photography in the process.  The K-01 is a great camera and at the current price of $350 it is an absolute steal, especially if you have a selection of Pentax lenses.

If you turn up the LCD to it's brightest setting you can see well enough to use in full sun light. For critical manual focus in full sun a 3x hood is available from ebay.  I also added a thumb grip to rear of the camera which increases the camera hold-ability and helps to prevent the SD rubber door flap from accidental opening which was quite irritating (now never happens with the thumb grip added)  I am so please and impressed with this little camera now that the firmware improved AF that I am considering to sell my K10 and K7 as the K-01 is now my favorite choice with the Da Primes.

Hope this helps at $350 for the body, you just can't go wrong.
