Hi,

Let's use your approach and say that in the best case scenario EVF resolution catches up with OVF resolution.  The issue will remain that EVFs exhibit lags where OVFs are instantaneous.  It simply takes milliseconds of processing time to capture the image, process it, relay it and display it in the EVF.  So for tasks like sports, birds in flight - anything that needs critical timing, the OVF is likely to be faster - probably always.

Now before anyone jumps me as pro DSLR and anti-mirror-less, I'm not.  I own both - I use a DSLR and I'm a fan of compact high IQ cameras. The future is both EVF and OVF.   Either/or threads are yesterdays debate.  It's horses for courses.  People will buy the camera that suits their needs.  If you read across the forums, you will see that many people own both.  Choice is good.  It's an innovative period and we as photographers are blessed with more choice than we've probably ever had.  Good!

I'm not Canon DSLR owner, but to be fair, give the 70D an opportunity to be evaluated on its merits rather than using your first post to be negative before even one has been sold.
