What do you call the mirrorbox in a mirrorless camera?

Pretty much what the subject says. In a recent thread, I mentioned looking inside the mirrorbox. What would I say for an M or R series?

Before you ask us, have you looked in the manual or on the Canon Support Site?

I was thinking along the lines of sensor compartment. I bring it up because "mirrorbox" is such a nice shorthand way to refer to it.

Hm, sensorbox?

Sensorbox then.

Clearly, the correct answer is "Mirrorless box" 🙂

For the next question: What does the "S" stand for in RF-S lenses?

AFAIK, the sensorbox is the same size between the FF and APS sized sensors.
