Re: D800/D810 or D850 - help me make a call?

As you state, that's exactly the reason the pop up flash is there... it does serve a purpose. I wish the 850 had it as well, but it's fine. I am using a SB-300 (tiny little OCF) in a pinch, or something a lot larger.

Your mileage may vary, but I consider the pop-up flash to be an advantage over the D850. It can function as a Commander for the line-of-sight Creative Lighting System flashes (SB800, SB900, SB910 etc) if you are invested in these units. The D850 requires a separate trigger on the hotshoe, or replacing older Speedlights with those using the Nikon Wireless trigger system.
