The obvious one is "no shutter". Removes an expensive, delicate part from the manufacture, reducing cost and increasing reliability in one step. Once you've seen it it's clear that it's the future, and Nikon have led the way here.

They did save money, but some would argue there is no added benefit.  Users could just leave the redundant shutter unused.  But there is a real benefit in replacing an unneeded mechanical shutter with a proper sensor protection screen.
