A recent review comparing the Olympus 14-42 kit lens to the Nikon and Canon kit lenses attempts to show that the Olympus was much sharper in the corners than either the Canon or Nikon, while the center remained nearly a dead heat. This review might be misinterpreted as the 4:3 aspect ratio results in squarer format than the APS C format which is approximately 3:2. If one were to crop 10% of each side of the APS frame (required to produce an 8x10 print) the resulting print quality may be quite similar. That is perhaps an advantage to the 4:3 format; one ends up with more pixels on the print when printing standard sizes 8x10, 16x20, or any of the ISO 216 (A1, A2, A4) paper sizes.

Well Japhy, I print mostly DIN, that is 1.414:1. 4:3=1.333:1 and APS-C = 1.5:1. So you're cropping the same amount from 4:3- or 3:2-original to DIN print. But I like the 3:2 better because it's closer to 16:10 (like HD-monitor 1920x1200) and 16:9 (TV).
So that's another reason why 4:3 is a bit outdated...
