No multi aspect sensor - see official Panasonic specs

Official specs here: http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/systemcamera/gms/gh3/specifications.html

The following pixel deimensions info was taken from the above link:
[4:3] 4,608 x 3,456
[3:2] 4,608 x 3,072
[16:9] 4,608 x 2,592
[1:1] 3,456 x 3,456

That's all you need to know - the widest images are 4,608 pixels wide, and images taken in 4:3, 3:2 and 16:9 are all exactly the same width.

Unless Panasonic has made a mistake on its official specifications sheet, the GH3 sensor is not multi-aspect.
