Haven't Sony and Seiko/Epson been trumpeting their 2+million pixel OLED/LCD[respectively] finders on various Sony, Fuji, and Olympus cameras currently on the market?
Nope, that's a marketing trick based on the difference between pixels and dots. A pixel is made up of three dots (a red, a green, and a blue).
Nikon could advertise the D800's 640x480 pixel LCD as "307,200 pixel" or "921,600 dot," so of course they choose the latter.
Sony's OLED EVF panel is 1024x768 pixel = 786,432 pixels = 2,359,296 dots. It's amazing nonetheless, FYI.
I believe Red's new OLED EVF uses the panel from French company MicroOLED which is the highest resolution on the market (1280x1024 = 1,310,720 pixels = 3,932,160 dots)
