A99

From my understanding the magnification mean the size of image in VF divide by image size on sensor. APS-C EVF will have 100%+ magnification because the image is bigger than actual image on sensor but FF, even at 70%~ percent will have bigger VF image because the sensor is bigger.

If my understanding is correct, it would mean NEXs' VF image is nine times the size of Fujis'
