Square sensor would mean a totally new system, a lot of FF lenses won´t work with a square (36x36 mm) sensor because they actually don´t give an image "circle".

It would also mean a new shutter mechanism and much higher production costs for the sensor (less sensors per wafer), to say nothing of the need to get rid of the OVF.

And who wants to look at square pictures? You´d always be cropping, i.e. wasting pixels. Very high priced pixels.

A very bad idea, IMO.

To fit in the image circle a square sensor would have to be smaller (around 30.6 x 30.6mm)

Yes of course, you´re right.
It does not alter the arguments, though.
