You are missing the point. External flash is so bulky and awkward! Plus you have to keep charging those NiMh batteries, which in itself is an extra thing to pack! That is why I have to always carry a m4/3 camera on vacation..... but wish I could do everything with a 5D. Granted, I would gladly let-go of the on-board flash if the 5DI and II (dont' know about III) is waterproof - but it is not.

.............and used properly with the correct technique, fill-flash (both for sunny and dark situations) can give beautiful results! At least better than one without.
