"MIRRORLESS" should NOT be in the description

There's NO REASON to name a new technology by what's missing from it.

The new name should be indicative of what it is. Not what it isn't.

These are digital interchangeable lens cameras. However you want to work that together, I don't care.

D-ILC maybe? And I'd argue we don't even need the D at this point.

But I think it's silly to name a new technology by referencing the old one, no matter how old and established. It's be like calling flat screen TVs "tubeless flat panel TVs".
