Of course the 16:9 aspect ratio isn't without issues of its own,
most specifically when it comes to printing (it doesn't fit any
standard print size and most computer monitors will display it
'letterbox' style). I, personally, love it, but if you don't use it
(in other words if you use the 3:2 or 4:3 modes) there is little,
if any point buying the LX2; you lose the wide angle lens and may
as well look at less expensive, less noisy 7 or 8MP alternatives


that sums it up quite nicely.

But there is a future in 9:16. Note all these new-fangled TFT-Displays and HDTV with high resolution screens. Display technology will advance and it will favour the 9:16 format. 4:3 was a concession to the limitations of old TV-screens and computer monitors.

Kind regards, Guenter
