IF Canon made two versions of the 5d...

If Canon made two versions of the 5D Mark III, one with flash, and the second without... I'd skip on the flash in a heart beat.

Oh wait I did buy a Canon 5D Mark III without a flash, and it works great. I gave Canon my support by buying a product that I think is great, unlike a good amount of people that are trolling here and stirring the "Pot" with little no intention of getting a 5D Mark III.

Canon got it correct, offer tools that allow remote trigger of flashes...regardless if there is an object between the line of site. I'll thank Pocket Wizards for giving Canon some inspiration.

Thought so!

I'm a Canon user but Nikon got this one right! And the cherry on top is being able to trigger remote flashes!
