The origins of aspect ratios in sensors go WAY back....

From the above link:

The origins of the aspect ratio of 35mm film can be traced to Oskar Barnack, an employee of Leitz Camera in Germany. Barnack believed the 3:2 aspect ratio to be the ideal choice for his invention, the first 35mm camera ever, dubbed the "Ur-Leica".

Yeah, WAY back to some guy who decided on his own that 3:2 is good. And we've been stuck with it ever since.

At the time Oskar Barnack made the first Leica 3:2 was the standard ratio in folding roll film cameras - so don't blame him!
