Does anyone know if the D800 built-in flash has the CLS Commander mode feature built in? The Nikon USA website lists this feature for the D700 built-in flash but has omitted reference to it in the D800. Could it be possible that the D800 will not have this built in capability???

The specs on the last page of the brochure say the built in flash is CLS capable.

Highly unlikely, as the Speedlight is a profitable accessory for Nikon. The in camera circuity has not changed much from the D200.
