Let's beat this viewfinder magnification into the ground... using the dpreview sensor size spec numbers, the Canon T1i crop factor is 1.61x and the Nikon D3100 crop is 1.56x. Multiplying by the published finder magnification of 0.87x for Canon and 0.80x for Nikon yields a product of 0.54 for Canon and 0.51 for Nikon. So Canon has a larger viewable finder by about 6 percent, not as big as the 9 percent difference from 0.80 to 0.87 but still somewhat larger. And they both have 95% coverage so that doesn't enter into it.
