Re: Yes, but I want the multi-aspect ratios

Panasonic needs to differentiate the G5 from the GH, and the multi-aspect sensor capability seems to be reserved for the more video optimized "H"ybrd series cameras. I think it's a marketing decision more than a technical one.

I've stopped thinking in terms of "equivalent" focal lengths on m43. 25mm is what it is, and what it might be similar to on some other format doesn't matter to me any more. We need to learn what to expect from our current equipment, not keep mapping it to the old. No one refers to their 50mm FF lens as "equivalent to 80mm on MF."
