Please don't come to the m43 forum spouting "knowledge" about 4/3 that you do not have.

Four Thirds and m43 is named for the aspect ratio. You are very wrong.

Good to meet a knowledgeable person!

I hope you can help me with my question about this aspect ratio: why it calls 4/3 instead of 3/4?

I prefere 3/4 because logically it fits into imperial inch system (1/2  1/4  1/8... etc.) and it looks perfect in decimal system .75 while 4/3 will be ugly 1.3333333.....
