Re: No flash = Con

If I want to use flash I put my 580EXII on my 5D as I know I can control it the way I want and it will have the power I need. The only advantage to built-in flash is if it can remote control other flashes. Otherwise I would have no use or need for it. And the fact that Canon doesn't have it on 5D, 1D and 1Ds, and 1Dx says to me Canon thinks pros don't want it whether you agree with it or not.
