Nothing "just happens"

It just happened that 35mm became a very popular film format and that as a result of that it became a standard for cameras and lenses also in the digital age. But it is just as arbitrary as any other format. There is nothing "optimal" about any format because every format has its own strengths and weaknesses, in film as well as in digital.

This is just your ignorant imagination. FF was an evolutionary survivor, other formats tried and failed to compete, 24mmx36mm -- succeeded!
