Re: Only with a multi-aspect sensor.

If a camera were to deliver the same number of pixels in all aspect ratios, it means that some aspect ratios would artificially have less pixels than what the sensor is capable of. That would fly like a led baloon amongst buyers.

Multiaspect is actually a big advantage, because making good use of the image circle far outweighs any trivial differences in pixel counts. Unfortunately, this is hard to market to the unwashed masses, which is presumably why there hasn't been a multi-aspect follow-on to the GH2 (other than the LX100s).
