The on-board flash argument is the same as video on a DSLR. Some photographers want it and some don't.

The common frown was "if I need to shoot video I'll buy a camcorder!".

That has to easily be the most short-sighted opinion in the history of DPR. The reason DSLR video has become so successful and essential is because of the combination of large-sensor and interchangeable lenses. It's truly revolutionised the market, rendering consumer camcorders almost useless for serious film-making.
