There are many. Leica V-Lux4, Panasonic FZ200 or FZ 150to names but three.

You have to know that the viewfinders on all these cameras is electronic and not optical, but I do not find that a problem.

Also along with those, Canon makes the very good G15 with a good enough optical viewfinder. I just doesn't do a  whole lot. That's ok, I still like it there.

One of the prettiest as well as most eloquent optical viewfinders I've ever used is the new one which can be mounted on the new Nikon Coolpix A.

SLR-like and pocket? I'm not sure what you're after there.

Look at Fujifilm X20, Fujifilm X100s, Sony Nex-6, Canon SL1 / 100D and Panasonic LF1.

"SLR-like" camera types all have TTL eye-level viewfinders, electronic, not optical. But none of them would qualify as "pocket cameras." because they are not small.... (shrugs)

"Pocket" is pretty limiting

The short answer is "no" because there are no SLR-like pocket cameras. I was carrying a Canon G12 around yesterday and it's a stretch to call it a pocket camera; it can be stuffed in a large pocket but is quite a lump. It does have a viewfinder, which is a good thing to have outdoors. But it's not "SLR-like" to me because it has a small sensor and a non-interchangable lens.

The famed Olympus OMD E-M5 could qualify as a pocket-able camera when used with a small lens eg:   pancake, and offers IQ comparable to an SLR while sporting a worthy viewfinder.

Depends on the pocket!

Canon's G12 has an optical viewfinder, but it's fixed and off center compared to the lens... The new SL1/100D is a full on DSLR with an optical viewfinder and can be small with a 40mm 2.8...

What does slr-like mean?   There are various pocketable cameras with viewinders, some optical, some electronic, but I don't think any of them resemble an slr.

How big is your pocket? Nikon P7100.
