Maybe what you don't get
In reply to VertigonA380, 7 months ago

is the economics and mechanics of designing and producing a camera for the mass market.

When Olympus and Panasonic developed 4/3, they started from scratch, chose what they thought was the best compromise for sensor size and proportion...

Panasonic did produce a multi format m43 camera w oversized sensor, but they haven't done a repeat.  Must be a reason for that.

As someone else mentioned, the best sensor to take full advantage of the lens would be round... but that would probably be a nightmare to manufacture, not to mention how would you handle the files.
