Canon A 2400 just introduced at CES has an optical viewfinder and image stabilization and a 28-112 lens. Cost, $110.

Canon G12, G15 and G1X, and Fuji X10 and X20, and Fuji XE-1, and Fuji X100 and X100S and Nikon 7100 all have optical viewfinders.

Maybe one of these will suit your Dad.

The Powershot A2400 doesn't have an optical viewfinder. You're thinking of the Powershot A1400 which unfortunately lacks image stabilisation.

The X-E1 has an electronic viewfinder. You're thinking of the Pro 1 which has an optical. They aren't very compact though.

The recent G series' viewfinders aren't very good. The X20 and X100s are the only good purchasing options I can think of for a quality tunnel viewfinder compact camera. Unfortunately they aren't the smallest or cheapest of cameras.

I don't know what the Nikon 7100's viewfinder is like so I won't comment on that.
