Not sure if what you describe is what I see. Using my XE1 with 3x mag I get what looks like edge enhancement. For example black text has a very narrow bright edge around each letter when the focus is correct. Similarly the random textured wallpaper in this room becomes much clearer in the viewfinder at the point of focus: the apparent image contrast suddenly increases.

For me, all this actually makes it easier to nail the focus. Who needs focus peaking?

Just tried focusing on a stack of papers and the edges are pronounced but inbetween its just a mush. Normally this 'pixelisation' does work fairly well as focus peaking, especially when using the evf non magnified.
