4/3 used in medium format cameras for years. Also most of the compact cameras are using it. Contrary to what is believed it is a much more comfortable format for composition. It was used frequently before photography - actually 3/2 is not that popular among painters - and they can choose whatever aspect ratio as they want - frequently choose 4/3. First cinema aspect was 4/3 too.    So looking from my point of view 3/2 is an anomaly, not the rule.
