    Hello guys/gals,

    Just got my VF1 installed on my GF1(+ 17mm Oly pancake) and I wanted to know what aspect ratio should I use. I'm aware that the Oly pancake goes hand in hand with the VF1 but this detail eludes me.

    Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Whatever aspect ratio you like. I prefer to shoot in 4:3, since that is what our cameras are, and therefore it uses the whole sensor. If I want to crop to another aspect later, I always can.

    If you're talking about getting the whole view exactly in the VF-1 viewfinder, then I would assume it would be 4:3?
