Commonly for some quick-and-dirty fill flash or to trigger an off-camera flash, yes.

By the time I've set up off-camera strobes, it's not a great difficulty to have also attached the E-M1's flash.

Look, I recognize that DSLRs have plenty of advantages, but the pop-up flash issue is a silly criticism. Handy? Sure. Deal killer? I would hope not.

Of course it isn't a deal killer, it's just an inconvenience. People have been saying the same thing about the D700/800 vs. the 5D series for years. BTW, the NEX-6/7 have it, so it isn't as if only DSLRs can shoehorn a "convenience flash" in there.

Plenty of very pro cameras don't have pop-up flashes, either.
