I like the 4:3 aspect ratio BUT since computer screens of today are far wider this ratio is not so pleasing. With 3:2 I get a much more pronounced in-my-face experience when viewing on screen (landscape mode).
I dont care for cropping every picture so therefore i intend to switch to 3:2 setting on my G6 this year.

My point is that screen format should be considered when chosing aspect. If one primarily is viewing on screens.

And if you view on screens there's no reason to be afraid of cropping from 4:3 to 3:2 or 16:9 or whatever. Most screen resolutions are far less than your MFT camera sensor, there's plenty of margin for cropping. Also when 4K screens appear.
