Since bodies without mirror use sensors and electronic displays there is already a physical limitation to what can be displayed - compared to the (theoretically) infinite resolution of an optical VF. Personally, I find the lag of electronic VF more irritating.
But then: why does IQ as seen through VF really matter?

Depends on the DSLR body too. Some, like the A900 or the 1dsMkIII, have nice big viewfinders. That makes more of a difference imho.

other than that, optical viewfinder is also clearer and brighter than EVF.

Hi, Optics is purer than digital electronics though both have imperfections which are corrected by image processing except in B&W or raw format.
