Why exactly would you want 1080p unless you do nothing but video? It is completely the wrong aspect ratio for either the 4/3's sensor or APS-C sensor. Besides, when it comes to EVF's 1080p is just as arbitrary a number. We're not going to be watching blue ray DVD's through them. They might as well choose the best resolution for taking photos...these are still cameras first, video cameras second after all. I personally would rather have 1600x1200...at least that is the same aspect ratio as the 4/3's sensor.

As the resolution of these panels climb, the image will look more real and less video. Higher resolution will show more detail, which might be good for critical manual focus. Resolution is only one facet of EVFs. There is also refresh rate/process lag which results in real time deviation.
These issues will take another course when OLEDS are introduced into the game.
