Leaving aside the dubious claim that 4:3 is "the ideal ratio for projecting on a screen", 4:3 does not use the most of the image circle of other aspect ratios (that honor falls to 1:1). In any case, I'm talking about a sensor that circumscribes the image circle, not a sensor that is inscribed in the image circle, so all aspect ratios can be used with 100% efficiency.

"4:3 is dubious format?"...

That's not quite what GB said.
