Best format to watch 2:35 dvds on Panasonic 50"?

hi everyone. just this past sunday i got my new TH-50PX80U. i'm trying to do everything by the book, including setting the 4:3 bars to "bright," putting the picure on "0" etc as per the panny website. question: i enjoy watching widescreen as widescreen, especially the 2:35 ratio, but at least for the first 100 hours want to minimize any chance of burn-in. i intend to mix up my viewing (TV, 1:85, 2:35, etc), but with dvds/films in the 2:35 ratio, giving you mild black bars at the top and bottom of the screen to preserve that ratio, on a panasonic plasma, what format would best fill the screen yet distort the image as little as possible, e.g., "just," "full," "zoom," etc.? much thanks for any info.

I own the same tv and only use the zoom mode for 2.35:1 movies until I have broke it in (100-200 hours of full screen)
