This edition of Greek text edited by Garvie is quite good. It includes an EXTENSIVE commentary...some parts of which are better than others. Garvie seems to abandon logic and sense in some of his comments but generally demonstrates his uncommonly strong grasp of Greek language. It's all there, iota adscripts and lunate sigmas!
