This happens to be true in the case of SmallHD’s new OLED HDMI and SDI monitors — and Organic Light Emitting Diodes are actually news to me in general.

Sony has been in the lead for the quality of the EVF on their cameras, specifically the NEX-7, A77, and A65. Panasonic is just behind with their GH2.
