What specification matters for viewfinders?

Hi everyone! I have a question. I have three DSLRs, a Canon EOS 5D, 800D (T7i) and 70D. My question is what spec matters for viewfinders (OVF or EVF)?

From my observations, the 5D has a much larger viewfinder compared to the other two cameras I own. I can see things clearly, and the viewfinder covers my whole eye, meaning there's not much empty space around the frame. In comparison, with the other two it feels like I'm looking down a tunnel, as the frame itself feels a bit small, and there's a lot more empty space. Because of this, I find the 5D more pleasant to use. Does this have something to do with the magnification?

Any help regarding this query is appreciated, thanks heaps
