My feeling is it is a bit of a gimmic as all it actually does is crop the picture you take, which you could actually do more effectively in post processing as that would give you compositional options as well.

That doesn't discredit the camera however, it is just an extra feature I wouldn't use--but others may find it convenient.

That makes complete sense Dave as that is what I see when comparing the 2 images.  The only times I have ever used it is when I wanted a little more reach and because I haven't bought a post processing program it is convenient as you said
