All from a humble film spool 35mm in height

35 seems to be the eternal format.

35 is the standard in both photography and also cinema.

So "35" is both 36x24 and 16x22 or 18.6x21.95 or 18.66x24.89.  Aspect ratio is 3:2 and 4:3 or 1.85:1 or 2.39:1 or 16:9, ect.  Lenses are rectilinear with backfocus ranging from 27.8 to 52mm... and anamorphic.

You are suggesting that Panasonic is going to build a larger camera + mount from the ground up and picking one of these "35"s is the obvious choice?  What about 40x30mm?  50x40mm?  60x70mm?  That would at least give them a niche.  Or are they so reliant on Sony now that they can only source cast off DSLR 36x24mm sensors for a camera system that has zero legacy optics (or users) to worry about?
