First, pop-up flash produces an awful, P&S like lighting, that anyone shooting with a D4 would avoid anyway.

But forget that for a minute, and I'll provide you a real world reason why it's useless.

I've shot many times with my D700 pop-up flash as a commander.

Too many times, as I have burnt it... it doens't work anymore.

Hmm... that leaves me with a camera with a 95% viewfinder, a weak spot on an overall sturdy camera, and that useless burnt flash that won't fire anymore.

Taking it to the repair shop is not an option (replacement price not worthy it).

There's a reason pro cameras do not have pop-up flash.
