I think some of my best shots are on 6x9 though.
I like the 1.5:1 aspect too. I saw this saunders easel post recently:

and if you look at the box in the photo, one of the "checkboxes" is "8x10 35mm full frame". I'll bet I'd like to have one of those. I wonder how hard it would be to find one. And yes standard frame sizes don't work all that well.. I'm thinking of buying a custom "sides and tops" in bulk. I also really like the old 122 format which is closer to 1.7:1. Custom framing needed for that aspect ratio too.
