I find onboard flash inadequate.   Use it only as wireless control.  Especially in the light of that 'why won't you take your best gear' comment:   why won't I take my best flash unit?   I dismount the Speedlite from my camera only when I pack it into bag for transportation.   (Or to use it off camera)

Standard neck strap makes carrying a camera with flash awkward at best.  Sling-style strap like BlackRapid RS-7 makes carrying a camera with flash attached a LOT more comfortable.

A pro body user is not going to rely on built-in flash for backup.   He will have 3-4 580's in the bag.
