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....

Err ... I guess you don't want to know.

MOST digital cameras are natively 4:3

No, really!

The other thing nobody seems to mention is that the 43 part of the camera system name DOES NOT COME FROM THE ASPECT RATIO!

It comes from the sensor size (and the screwy way they measure it). It could be almost any shape, and still fit within the measurements 43 allows.
