No question that M42 could not support AF and electronic coding of aperture, focus and distance. But it would be nice to have a common mount for all (Japanese) FF & APS-C cameras. I think the only thing the camera companies share is one brain.

I agree it sure would be nice if there was a common mount, I'm all for that.  And in fact back in the early days T and T2 mounts as well as others gave us hope for a few years that it might occur.  Unfortunately maximizing profit and expanding technology killed that idea
