Re: TS-E's might be a good reason not to want pop-up flash

Not wanting a pop-up flash because it's "too amateurish" or whatever is a bit silly, but from what I've seen so far, pop-up flashes require the prism hump's "lip" to extend further over the lens mount. 1D(s) and 5D series Canons are great for handling tilt-shift lenses since the prism hump doesn't get in the way when rotating the lens. I'm not 100% sure, but a pop-up flash that rises high enough to be useful at all would probably compromise this.

Pop up flash can be implemented in many ways, doesnt have to be on top of the OVF.
