It shows the same as for the Mark I however, so it can be either copy/paste or they are actually the same.

The same specs are stated for a couple of cameras with different magnification - from about 0.43 to about 0.62. It probably depends on lens system used for looking at that 0.39-inch OLED display. Some review stated that EVF magnification in G5X is 0.59x (35mm equivalent) what means slightly smaller image than in my Olympus OMD EM10 II (0.63x). And in another review there was stated that EVF magnification in Sony RX100 cameras is about 0.49 or 0.53, I don't remember well, but probably less than in G5X. Therefore I would like to know how is it with pop-up EVF in G5X II.
