So why don't people ever talk about the 4/3 aspect ratio?

I know this is a gear forum, but the 4/3 aspect ratio is a big deal.

It is not the same as 3/2.  It is not the same as a APSC or FF , or really, ANY other camera.

People come and go on this forum talking about moving to m43 so they have smaller and lighter cameras.  People wax lyrical about the EM-1 as The Best Camera Ever,  but no-one talks about the aspect ratio.

The aspect ratio can make a big difference to photo making.  This is a creative thing we are doing, so what is the experience of people here in adapting to 4/3 over 3/2 from a creative standpoint?

Was  is it hard?  Do you find that you have to crop more because the format seems too square? Or do you not notice?

Or maybe you don't even really think about it and polish your shiny new gear instead?

The 4/3 aspect is a big change for some people.

I am surprised that so little talk of it takes place.  Or am I missing something?
