A missing Con in the Canon 5d III's review: absence of an onboard flash

No flash = Con

My husband and I own a photography business and we absolutely have less than zero use for an onboard flash. But the D800 flash doesn't hurt anything and can trigger remote flashes and even be pressed into service if needed. Put a small 50mm on the D800 and it's a high-end low profile camera and you don't need to carry a flash. Whether I use it or not every feature of a camera broadens it's versatility and appeal. All of this nonsense about pro bodies is crazy. The D800 is the highest MP and best IQ on the market today. AND it has a built in flash. What's there not to like?
