Golden Ratio block on a 5D Mark III body... the body design is not random after all!

The Japanese rarely do anything just by "chance". Everything is designed for a purpose with thought behind every detail.

The 5D3 is quite simply a full frame version of the 7D, it has taken all the elements that made the 7D great and brought it to full frame. The 7D is the camera which obeys the golden ratio best.

Apple seems to be the only American company that does similar.

People seem to lose track of the fact that buyers (even photo nerds) are influenced by appearances; all other things equal, the more attractive size and shape will be preferred by someone looking at the external characteristics of an object. A dSLR can be pretty much any shape as long as it's able to contain the internal hardware and fit the user's hands, so why not pick an esthetically pleasing shape?

It's not a coincidence that new HD monitors are shaped very close to the 1.6:1 aspect ratio; this was actively taken into account when choosing the HD screen presentation format.
