There is quite a severe crop factor penalty in going from 43 to 169... unless you are shooting with a multi-aspect sensor, you should always shoot in native aspect.

how do you prefer to shoot? I prefer the 16:9 format for horizontal shots but for vertical prefer the 4:3 simply because all screens and TV's are 16:9 these days gives a nice filling image during a slide show.

Even shooting raw with Olympus still shoots 4:3 but with the "crop" window already per-defined for post-processing.
Just curious which format do you prefer?
