It is difficult to think of another area of technology where where replacing mechanical components with electronic systems does not decrease costs. If it does not it begs the question what is the point? It is probably why Canon are still selling shed loads of DSLR's as there has been no economic advantage demonstrated in mirrorless sytems at all. Also with DSLR's you get fast dedicated focusing sensors thrown in also helping decrease the costs in the inverse mirror view of the world that is mirrorless finance.

Edit: Probably mirrorless is a solution which has just failed to persuade people that there was a problem.

Could be that they're more expensive than the popular myth suggests ("mirrorless is better because it's cheaper to produce without all those moving parts")
