And then the NEX software takes it a step further in the wrong direction by trimming the display size in order to put a black border around both the shooting image and the stored images. Effectively bringing the 3:2 image down to a 2-5/8" diagonal, and the 16:9 image to a 2-1/2" diagonal.

Why, so some of the text can have a black background? Digitals have always had the text on top of the image. Why start worrying about that now?

To be fair it has to be noted that the full screen is used when zooming in on stored images but this takes a lot of clicks to bring it down to the borders.

This irritated me for a long time until I discovered there is a menu option to fill up the display.

MENU > Setup > Wide Image > Full Screen

This works if you are shooting wide, but if you are using the entire 3:2 sensor it doesn't help. Wide trims the photo to achieve that ratio.
