Except for the GH2 (and GH1?), I think it's better to shoot 4:3 and crop in post.  Some people prefer to crop in camera if they know they're going to use 3:2 because they find it helps them compose better.  I prefer the flexibility of adjusting the composition later.

Earlier GH cameras had multi-aspect sensors that would actually use different parts of the sensor when wider formats were used so you lost less resolution and you actually got a wider FOV.  I loved that with my GH2 and don't understand why Panasonic dropped it.
