Sure I understand the ratio, but why didn't they just make it 1:1? I mean the converging lens would create the same image projection on the sensor, so why make it 4:3 and lose out? Or am I missing something technical in between?

I think customers (who are mostly traditional thinkers) would have been scared off and they wouldn't have sold enough E-1s to make any money and we'd never have had any more cameras, let along m4/3rds system.

Yes it makes efficient use of round lenses, but its just too 'different' for the customer base.
