Some old lenses are very high quality.

If you can live without a viewfinder, there are some amazing deals on the Pentax K-01. Focus peaking makes focussing quick and accurate with manual lenses and it will meter any lens with just the press of a button: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?atclk=Category_Digital+Cameras&sts=ma&Ns=p_PRICE_2%7c0&ci=9811&N=4291645412&Ntt=pentax+k-01

The K-30 also has peaking, but in a traditional SLR format. No DSLR in its price range can compete on photographically relevant features (Pentaprism OVF, 100% coverage, dual control wheels, shake reduction, weather-resistance:
