Reviewing images in EVF vs rear screen

I've been experiencing some missed focus shots on my GX1 when using it with my PL25mm at f1.4. The shots appear to have grabbed focus of what I wanted when I review them on the rear screen but later I discover they have picked up something else, often meaning the shot gets trashed. I guess I need to touch the area I want to focus the activate focus lock..

Any rate I've been contemplating updating the body to either a GM1, GX7 or EM10 for a variety of features. I was wondering whether they newer higher resolution rear screens are capable of revealing focus details better than the 460k last gen screens? Or whether the EVF on either the GX7 or EM10 are a better option? Do you still review images on the LCD screen or is the EVF good enough?

I have to agree I had no way to see the true sharpness by viewing GX1 low res LCD, despite that I consider myself with pretty good eyesight. On the other hand I have no problem seeing absolute focus with EM5 LCD

I just recently bit the bullet and for the LVF-2, and it has made focus a lot easier to ascertain. Turning the jpeg sharpness up also helps edges seem crisper in the EVF.
