Not to nit pick, but the lens you're talking about is F3.8, aka, "1:3.8".
It's not 1.38, I'm sorry to say! :)
For a second there I thought A) how the hell did a zoom lens that fast slip under my nose, and B) I need to get one!

You did some tasty work with it. Keep it up!

Hi Ben - you almost certainly have an 800x RGBx480 native resolution screen. The maximum resolution referred to in the ad of 1024x768 is from a PC and would be scaled to fit your native res.

If you had a native 1024 x 768 screen it would be 4x3 aspect ratio as LCD pixels are square ;)

4x3 aspect ratio may be buried in the menu system or a button on the remote?

Suppose you've investigated all that...

Ben, what is the "name" on the top left edge of the screen? Can't make it out. Yours says "SUPER" - the eBay one doesn't?

Matt, I'm not sure if you're referring to the SLR lens or the 35mm adapter in general--in either case, neither allows me to shoot natively in 16:9, that's simply a function of the GL2. If you're asking what lens I have on there, it's a Canon FD 55mm 1:1.2.
