And ya I shoot 4:3 coz it makes use of the full resolution of the sensor, and I kinda feel that shooting 3:2, some of the image produced by the lens is "wasted"

Resolution has no meaning if your framing is not what it should be. Most larger sensors have more pixels anyway, and cropping to a different formats is hardly a downside. It is the ratio or framing that one often feels more comfortable with (for a certain subject at least) than with what it would be (look like) if it were different.
