A lot of people seem to think that they will just get more height with a square sensor. They forget that they also get less width.

I believe they think you maximize the area within the given image circle, and this is correct. Whether you like square images or not, is another story.

BTW, smaller formats are almost always 4:3, i.e., closer to a square than 3:2, probably for the same reason.
