you either have to crop or have some "white space" on the edges.
But, there is no real answer (and 35mm does this as well) since the aspect
ration for 5x7, 8x10 and 4x6 (and 3.5x5) are all different, no one single
capture format will be perfect for all of them.
Photo printing software (and web services) have some kind of fit/fill (Ofoto
calls it zoom/crop) that will either fit the entire picture onthe paper and
give it some white space in the extra space or put one dimension on
full-bleed and then crop off the extra pictures to fill out the paper.
