D5100 X D5300 Viewfinder . The difference is that big ?

Hi everyone.

Nikon D5100 did drop in price dramatically. I was thinking about getting one.  It does happen I have always found  DSLR viewfinder quite small and dark.

The Nikon newest model  , the D5300 has a 0,82 magnification against the 5100  , 0,78 magnification.

The diference is that big , in real terms ? (its a 5% increase )

Does anyone used both cameras ?

Using the 5100 just in live view is a good option ?

Thank you in advance.
