I was poking around for a little while the other night, and found several that would be totally comfortable except for the SO2 being too high. That in itself isn't too interesting, but then I did find one world that was breathable (again except for SO2) but was a temperate terra moon of a gas giant. Pandora! Dammit though, for I thought I saved its location correctly, but it turns out you have to actually goto/follow the planet, not just have it selected. So I lost the coordinates.

Here's another one which was similar and quite pretty though.
My first temperate terra where you can breathe (very uncomfortably) for more than an hour before dying, and be relatively okay for 10 minutes. And it has rings. ^_^ The oxygen level at the surface of this world is comparable to being at about 5000m (16000ft) on Earth.

You would actually see benefits to your stamina and strength once you got your breathing techniques in line with being equal to living 6,000m above sea level. The air is rich in O2 at 36.6% but the air is still very thin at .106 partial pressure of O2. So take a deep breath!
Oh, WAIT! Don't breathe just yet! The Carbon Dioxide is worse than the smoggiest day in Los Angeles or Mexico City. You'll be tossing your cookies and crying a river, but you might live a few days, so... Cheers!
Sulfur Dioxide is what I would call extremely low (for SE), but you still could smell this planet a light year away haha. Don't play outside more than an hour or so, it won't be snowing SO2 anytime soon in that thinner atmosphere.
It could possibly become a tourist destination for extremeophiles, just not permanently habitable without major terraforming.
Good Job! If the SO2 was at 6.98*10^-6 it would be on the list of planets worth setting up shop on.

Of course you'd die after a few months of progressive damage to your lungs etc,loose your smell in a few days or go blind quickly BUT you could set up air scrubbers for incoming colonist after terraforming things. Great find!
yeah breathing mask (full face) would change everything dramatically!

Try searches with lower temperatures i think. That seems to lower SO2 readings, possibly because of condensation, as i mentioned before.
