I don't even ever use flash on my point and shoots or my iPhone. The single best thing most people can do for their photography is disable the flash.

Mmmmm. I agree with you because non flash pics are more natural and rich but the onboard flash of the 7D works wonderfuly as a fill flash when you have portraits against the light (when you travel or when you are against the light in front of a monument or an important natural backdrop), besides, the flash in the 7D triggers other Canon out of camera flashes remotely!!!! it is a transmitter. This was copied by Nikon in the D800 camera and it is fantastic. i personally would love to see a full frame camera with an onboard flash like the 7D...

Ummm...Nikon didn't copy that from Canon, it's vice versa, Nikon has had this feature in their cameras for several years.
