Very interesting.

My experience is that the human angle of vision is about 50 degees with any reliable visual perception. Peripheral vision can be 120+ degrees but not with high resolution. Thus, the normal lens (50mm) approximates normal human vision. It has somewhere around a 50-degrees angle of vision.

The human eye has only 1.2 million nerve endings. It might be difficult to argue that it can see more than 1.2 million pixels.

Light and vision are very complex scientific topics, and I don't know much about them. But I throw out these observations for discussion.

I have been using EVFs since the Minolta A1 (0.8MP). They work well. Currently I use a Sony A55 with a EVF which works better than any camera I've every used. However, I haven't used the high-end $3,000+ cameras.
