With some advanced setup you may be able to synchronize 60fps video with display refresh rate. This will make the test as precise as it gets on 60Hz display.

The thing to do would be to take a 1080p60 video of the camera +EVF viewing something like moving traffic. That would eliminate any quantization of the original source and leave only the synchronization of the EVF and the camera capturing the video as a potential issue.

Only one little problem here. In order to get lag values in milliseconds you would have to know the speed of each car at any moment when the car was captured.
