Is the EVF spec DP reported on X-E1 incorrect?

1D-X

Viewfinder magnification 0.76×

NEX-6
Viewfinder coverage 100 %
Viewfinder magnification 1.09×

A99
Viewfinder coverage 100 %
Viewfinder magnification 0.74×

X-Pro1
Viewfinder coverage 100 %
Viewfinder magnification 0.37×

X-E1
Viewfinder coverage 100 %
Viewfinder magnification 0.37×

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'
