Set a tele-lens on a rotational camera that accepts lenses of different focal lenghts (latest models from Seitz) and you'll gain a great aspect ratio and still may only have a very small angle of view.
So as indicated above aspect ratio and angle of view are basically independant, even for panning cameras.
