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.

The Fuji EVF magnification of .62x is stated as FF equivalence. The NEX7 EVF magnification is .7x in FF equivalence. The Sony is just slightly larger.
