It's going to depend a lot on the font-size statements contained in the css of each epub you're looking at. Try a few different epubs - particularly one you've read before and which looked OK.

I set all my epubs to have main body text at font-size:1em and my <fontSizeTableEpub> values range from 75-110 in increments of 5. I haven't had any problems so far.

[Edit:] ... just another thought, there may also be an effect created by which custom font(s) you've set up. Some fonts display bigger than others e.g. 2 of my custom fonts are Kindle Caecilia and Arno Pro. The former looks 'best', to me, at zoom level 2 (80) the latter at zoom level 7 (105)
