Yes, but it also has to make sense. Digital Single-Lens Viewfinder? Doesn't make sense to me. DSLEV makes more sense, but it has too many letters. Perhaps they should just be called DEV cameras.
Hey, how about just DM43 cameras? Why not just use the M4/3 designation?
After posting that, it dawned on me that we can just drop the D. I mean, there is no longer any need to contrast digital with film since digital is now dominant and taking over the camera market. It seems to me, then, that calling them M4/3 cameras is the way to go.
It depends how narrow you want the group to be. M4/3 is fine for this specific standard, but what if Canon, say, come out with their own version. I prefer just EV cameras - this would include superzooms and bridges, but I don't have a problem with that. I agree that we don't need the SL bit - the 'single lens' is a reference back to the days when there were reflex cameras with two identical lenses, like the Rolleiflex - definitely time expired!
