A6300 - Incorrect "Marker" aspect ratio 2.35:1 and 1.85:1

[ Edited ]

The a6300 frame guide, or "Marker" as Sony calls them, is incorrect on my a6300. The Marker for 2.35:1 is way too long. The 1.85:1 marker actually seems to be 2.35:1. The other markers seem to be correct but it's harder to tell.

 

To illustrate this, I took an image of an actual 2.35:1 image on my desktop. I used the 2.35:1 marker and fit the height of the image into the marker but you can see that the length is all wrong. The link to my experiment is below. It's obviously not the scientific method but the results are unmistakable. 

 

Aspect ratio is extremely important in determining the compostion of an image. The composition of an image is of utmost importance to me as a cinematographer. As such, the incorrect markers in this camera, geared toward people in the video world, is a sin. Please fix it with another update, promptly.

The original thread creator reported this problem over 5 months ago. The last firmware update, which was released one month earlier, didn't fix that problem.

 

I think it has something to to with the different aspect ratio of the back screen (16:9) and the EVF (3:2), because in the EVF the markers are indeed correct.

 

What is the current state of this problem?
