X-T1 - no built-in flash?
5

It looks like X-T1 will not have a built-in 'fill' flash?

How did this trend come about that high end mirrorless camera cannot have a built-in flash, Olympus E-M1, Sony A7R and now X-T1? The trend surely didn't come from DSLR as most Nikon high end has one built-in.

I think it makes even more sense with mirrorless to have one as size is one of the main concern and it's an enthusiast market where many don't want to use external flashes, at least for quick social or fill, and if bounce is very important then hotshoe is always there, or make the flash tilt-able.
