Plus the earlier technology Sony alphas which had a separate live view
image sensor (A300 & 350 at least) used that sensor, when it was
activated, for exposure assessment. I recall some reviewers of the
A350 mentioning how amazingly well the A350 in live view mode managed
on autoexposure to avoid overexposing small highlights.
