So why don't people ever talk about the 4/3 aspect ratio?

Re: So why don't people ever talk about the 4/3 aspect ratio?

For 49 years I used the 3:2 format but last March I went 4:3. Initially I found it a little awkward, but now I never think about it; however, I do not crop my images. I only take landscape details and make the subject fit the frame.

What I have never understood is this; lenses produce a circular image, so why aren't all sensors square? There must be a reason.
