This is a very silly thing to defend.

And it can only be defended with sillier argument:

1, "It will break"
2, "It will get moist damage"

3, "It is better to use a 580EX II, which I carry one at all times in all places."
4, "It is no different to a coffee making function"

I can imaging right now what a good laugh people will get in a few years time reading this thread.

1, I didn't say it will break

Wasnt directed at you, read others' posts.

2, I didn't say it will get moisture damage.

3, Again, if I'm carrying my SLR and lenses, then I'm going to have my flash, they occupy the same bags.

Would you think there are no one else out there that would go out with just a body and a walk around lens to a walk or a party or something casual and may end need a flash of some sort?

Because whether to include a flash isnt about you, it is about what a good portion of customers would do.

4 I couldn't comment to when and where coffee comes into this...
