Built-in speedlite transmitter

What do you guys think about having speedlite transmitter built into the camera?

Do you think that it is feasable for transmitter like st-e3-rt to be built into a camera like the EOS R5?

Would you be willing to pay extra 200$ for that feature? I personally would!

That module it wont cost more than 20 bucks if it is integrated in the camera.

I would be a huge fan of a built in transmitter. Buying a separate unit from Canon is $300, and having it built in would be really nice, so I would even be willing to pay more than $300 for the feature. That said, I would prefer $20.

I wonder why the 1 and 5 series high-end cameras haven't had this feature for a long time?

The only reason is money.

You could ask the same about the cameras not having built in GPS.

Both would be very nice to have and cheap to implement.
