Thanks for the answer; in fairness, I have thought of all of those things except for the vignetting.Solo wrote:...not using it at full power just seems wasteful. This in my opinion is why most people don't bother switching over.
...The resolutions would drop, fisheye distortion would increase, and you know the dark corners you get from time to time in shots (which is called vignetting)? That'll only get worse.
So, to answer your initial question, no. There is no artsy reason to stick with one over the other, and there's no significant reason to change the tried and tested image ratio just so pictures will look prettier on those new fangle widescreen monitors.
