I like the available on-board flash on my 7D and it comes in handy. The so-called PRO canon cameras have no built-in flash so you have to carry around a dedicated flash and attach it when needed, or use high noisier ISOs to capture the moment while paying more to do so.

The question I ask is... "Is an on-board flash on a camera important to you?"

(This is my 3,000 post on DPR)

Yes and No.

I mostly shoot with 2 cameras on my weddings.

- YES, When using my T3i its a good thing to have the onboard flash as a wireless controller.

- NO, with my 6D and his high ISO new sensor almost shoot on available light, but always have attached a n ST-E2 or a venerable 550EX II as a master one, just in case to use some remotes (430EX II) I placed around.

Best wishes,
