The viewfinder of both the Olympus Pen-F and OM-D E-M10-III have a coverage of 100% and a magnification of 1.23x, and both use a Four Thirds sensor.

Then, why the size of one is supposed to be 0.39" (Pen-F) and the other 0.45"?

Please help.

The size is the dimension of the actual panel. The magnification is how it appears when viewing the panel through the optics.
