Pro level cameras don't have it....

The Nikon D4, Canon 1DMkIV, 1D X, Pentax 645D, Fujifilm S2.... Don't have on board flash. Unless you have a small lens without hood, you will have shadows, and limited control, no bounce and tough to diffuse. I avoid it at all costs... Perhaps you should wait for the 7D Mk II, I'm sure it will be a good camera with flash.... I have several pro bodies and the 5DMIII & 7D. Never use it, carry a 580EX, 430EX or 270EX instead...
