Mirrorless technology saves on size and enables speed and image quality
Mirrorless functionality enables a number of differences in the shooting experience over the mirrored equivalent DX product. Noticeably, the mirror takes up room and by removing it there is a space saving in the body size. The purpose of the mirror is to reflect the image into an optical view finder and by replacing the mirror the view of the subject is offered via the screen on the back or an electronic image via the tiny screen within the viewfinder. The geometry of the distance between the lens mount and the sensor also changes enabling changes to the size of the mount and more light is available to the sensor. As photography is literally painting with light, more light available opens the door to increased options to capture and express yourself creatively.
