Skip - you are really missing the point. Nobody is arguing that external flashes will give you better results..........but in a pinch, an on-board flash can cover the basics with pleasing results..........almost similar to an external if used properly.

No, you and pretty much every body else is missing the point. The OP asked if it was a "con" for its lack, and asked for refutation. Whether it's needed by some, or not by others, is entirely beside the point.
