But neither of you answers the basic question. What is the actual purpose of 4:3? What is wrong with the 3:2 legacy aspect ratio currently used by both film and digital SLR's?

Is there truely a future for 2 consumer dSLR formats?
I don't really see any problem with 4:3. Look at a tabloid newspaper page. That's more 4:3 than 2:3. Magazines are the same. In fact, the smallest of the 120 formats 6 x 4.5 is the same as 4:3 so 4:3 is a legacy format and incidentally, is one of the most popular 120 formats.
