Vformat correction?

Does anybody know if the Fujinon or Canon lenses for these cameras offer the Vformat correction feature? It's basically a switch that allows you to shoot in 4x3 without losing any of the width of the lens. B+H's website lists it as a feature of the 18x4.2 Fujinon lens, but Fujinon's website doesn't list it. I called somebody at B+H a few minutes ago, and he got a Fujinon tech on the phone who didn't know. The tech is calling him back in a few hours, and I'm calling the B+H rep to see what he found out. Does anybody have these lenses that could tell me if the feature is for real or not?

Vformat is usually built into the extender turret. I wouldn't count on a lens having Vformat unless it at least has a zoom extender.

That's what I thought. I didn't see it in any of the pictures, but I thought I'd ask to be sure. I'll see what the Fujinon techs say today. Thanks
