Magnification of X-E1's viewfinder

It was not published by Fuji, but Andy Westlake estimated the EVF magnification to be .62x. This is just slightly larger than the X-Pro 1 EVF. All viewfinders (EVF & OVF) have a magnification spec.
Right. Fuji chose a smaller magnification EVF so you can compose easier (see the whole picture without moving your eyes) but I think it might make MF with legacy lenses harder. The Nex7 on the other hand has 1x magnification.
