Why is there a big hole in the body of the camera when you remove the lens?

Surely a piece of glass could be in that hole, in front of the mirror (behind the lens) to prevent dust getting in.

OMG: Buy a Rocket Blower and a Lens Pen and just move on. Be grateful you have a direct path to the sensor and pity the poor fools that have a fixed lens camera.

Sooner or later, every camera with a zoom lens will get something sticky (flower pollen?) on the sensor that won't shake off and those of us with a big hole in the front of our cameras will be able to take care of that problem. Count your blessings.
