This is just a Canon concept. I can't see why an built-in flash, which is very handy for use, will downgrade a camera!
It's extra weight to carry around, extra space (both again to carry around and in camera engineering terms), and extra cost. All for nothing if you use a better flash when you must use flash at all.

UNCRIPPLE THE D@MN K MOUNT!!!

There are some working photographers that have used Pentax lenses for years, and have M and K lenses. It wouldn't add much to the cost of the camera, and would redeem Pentax's reputation for backwards computability that they damaged with the *st and all the digitals.

For journos who use flash, on camera, 99% of the time a really competent incorporated unit would be a blessing.
There are lots of them and they use up cameras at a frightful rate, so a specialist papparazzi product line is probably quite feasable.
