Re: 5:4 aspect ratio - who uses it?

I use it only when I know that the final product has to be delivered in 8x10; it makes it easier and quicker for editing afterwards. I always tend to shoot to fill my frame completely, so if I'm in std 3:2 then it makes it very hard to get 8x10s out of my shots as there's very little, if any, leeway for cropping. If I use 5:4 from the start then it's kind of a safety net for me as I don't have to worry about this later on.
