Thank you Sean and DElliot. It confirms what I thought.

I understand that the 4:3 ratio gave the name to the whole system but I'm wondering how many people really shoot at 4:3 today and why.

Every scene has its own optimal ratio for the desired composition - including as much as you want in the picture and excluding as much as you don't want. I don't like to waste my time cropping in post, so use whatever is available on E-M5, from 1:1 to 16:9 (3:4 is only for 1.33x "digital zoom" when my FL is too short but 2x is too long, otherwise 4:3 turned 90 degrees works better). And I wouldn't mind 2:1 sometimes.
