Re: You're missing the point: CLS Commander

So, you can buy a 3rd party controller for your Canon, and use it with multiple brands of flash units. Why be locked into proprietary systems?

The real reason for adding a pop-up flash on D800 is this:

It works as a CLS commander controlling 3 groups of Speedlites independently (including self) directly from the camera menu. Just as you can on 7D (execpt that Canon implemented it award).

This is a REALLY brilliant feature in case you forgot your radiotrigger or didn't buy'em in the first place. All newer Nikon SB-flashes supports CLS. And it is all included!
