I laughed when you said the only time you were jealous about Nikon.
I don't think I'll ever be using an on camera flash. I got the flashes with one thing in mind: off-camera
I use it for quick little snapshots or candids, like the one I attached. I was out playing in the front yard with my daughter and I snapped her just as she was walking by and her head blocked out the sun behind her.
I also use it for clients who can't afford to hire me at regular price. In fact, part of my portfolio includes these shots so I can show people who want a budget shoot what to expect. I hardly ever turn down a gig. If someone only has 20 or 30 bucks to spend I show up with one lens and one light and do something like this and snap a few pics. In an out in less than 10 minutes and I made enough to treat my wife to dinner.
Sure, I can look at this and see a million things I don't like about it. Light lacks direction, needs hair light, eyes aren't bright, no nice catchlight, no soft shadows......but most people won't notice these things.
