Re: U43 format - why 1/4 FF

It's a reflection of design decisions made in the early to mid 2000s. Back then big sensors were expensive and tele-centricity was important (as Graham's post has illustrated above). Would they make the same design decisions today? I doubt it, but for me it's still a highly relevant standard since it delivers an excellent blend of compactness and performance.
