No OVF with ground glass will be able to show you detail equivalent of each pixel in say the final 24MP image, regardless of how good your eyes are. An EVF can, regardless of its resolution, as long as there's a quick magnification button that allows you to magnify up to pixel level (of the sensor).

And from where have you derived these facts? Please provide links/references!

Maybe by doing so you can show us just how many pixels can be resolved, specifically on an A900 screen, not forgetting that there are 3 to choose from.

Sure as hell gonna be more than a measly 2.4Mp.

You talk the talk, let's see if you can walk the walk!

It wouldn't matter if the ground glass of the A900 could resolve more pixels than the sensor in the camera. The viewfinder is so small that there is no way for the human eye to differentiate one pixel from the adjacent one without magnification.

Read what TrojMacReady wrote again, you'll find he is correct. Even if you bolt on a 2x angle finder, you still can't differentiate adjacent pixels in an OVF
