In engineering school, when one asked a simplistic question the most everyone one else in the class would know the answer to, the professor would say in this case, Mr. Miller, the answer to that question is intuitively obvious to the most casual of observers. However, even to a studied student, occasionally a cow flies by the window and the obvious becomes non obvious for a fleeting second. And we don't make fun of in such an instance, the art of HT education being a collegial effort regardless of the mix of collegians and any learning disabilities they might have.
Ahem, will this Haflich guy ever get to the point and cease his stream of needless babble?
OK. If things are sharper using the panel as a 1.7777 panel instead of a 1.88888 panel and the objective is to maintain or at least maximize such sharpness, and maintenance of sharpness with respect to aging humans is indeed hard to do (he just can't help himself babble wise, he thinks he must be Coderguy), then one should zoom from 1.777 panel size to fill a 2.35 screen with active image and black bars disappearing into a protostar if possible void above and below the screen.
