To heck with universal flash control standards why not a UN convention to enforce a universal lens mount? I mean talk about a bigger audience; everyone uses lenses, but I bet only 5% of DSLR users own more than one flash. I should be able to slap any glass on any camera:-) What is really so special about each of those mounts? A few electronic contacts and maybe a small motor or two. And make all the focus and zoom rings adhere to a standard for which way they turn and which is closest to the camera body. I cannot believe we live in this crazy world of dozens of lens mounts for the past 100 years.
