The composition will be different, probably more effective. That's my approach anyway.

I'll keep in mind since it is an easy change the Super Control Panel. I normally try to give myself a little wiggle room for cropping on the edges of my photos anyway.

I guess I wasn't too clear.

What I meant is that when you change aspect ratio, you tend to see and compose differently to suit the different field of view. So, if the end result will to be 16:9 or 3:2 or 1:1, why not switch and compose with that aspect ratio directly. It's easy enough to do.
