Well done. From experience I know that can be a hair pulling moment. You've captured it really well.

and for empirical evidence from my kitchen....
First strip is with anti-flicker on.... I took ten shots and they were all the same.
Second strip is with anti-flicker off... I took ten shots and they were all over the place
all shots manual and same iso, aperture, and shutter speed... no processing other than to shrink the size down.
Sure, go look at video forums and listen to the talk. You keep on reading that talk. That's just like reading this forum. There's lots of talk by people who like to talk — a massive distortion field. But then go look at people actually working and creating video. Time after time, I see them using Canon gear, often *new* Canon gear. They come to weddings and events with more Canon gear than I do. I've yet to see one using a Sony, at least not since the 5D2 came out. Sure not everyone has switched yet. In my world, no one has switched. Actually, they are praising Canon features and video quality and lenses, etc. They keep pouring their money into the 70D, 5D3, etc. While you're bashing Canon online for "crippling" video quality, they're relying on Canon's video quality every week for the work they live on and choosing Canon over competitors.
I haven't forgotten. The cameras are simply tools and the better the tool, the easier it is for me to get my job done. For those who think it's all about the person behind the camera, well, that's partly true. The thing is, you'd likely rather use a 5D3 to do the job as opposed to a 10D (or at least I sure do for what I shoot). Yes, you can get the shot but it will likely look nicer and will be immensely easier to get it with some tools rather than others. So no, when I'm in places and circumstances wherein it is now easier for me to get my shot (and it looks better too), I don't at the time think "wow, this is much less work and a little more fun" but there have been times afterwards that I have.+1
If I knew half what I knew now when I started I would have smacked myself upside the head. A few hours of study would have been far more useful.
Actually it's quite slow on a 5dmk3 body also. Super lens on a 1dx body, which focuses (drives the 85/1.2 II Ultra Sonic Motor) much faster because of the 11.1v battery compared to 5d's 7.2volt battery. I did some really simple focussing on some stuff when i received my 1dx and in my test setup (switching between targets at near and far distant) it was like 1.3 seconds on 1dx compared to 2 seconds on 5dmk3.
Great lens anyway!
This is the key also having it on a 1d body makes a big difference. As for lens changes during an event just don't do it
Typically I'll leave my 85 on one body and have either the 16-35 or 35 1.4 on another body depends on what is needed but generally I find indoor or night event 2 ff bodies with an 85 on one and 35 1.4 on the other a killer combo
Fortunately it is the same opinion as many others - including Canon
I'm putting money on the 7DII not having one.
Another user here that is firmly in the camp of don't put a pop-up flash on my camera. Even for fill there are better alternatives.
There is no alternative if you don't have one with you.
Why the heck does the darn little flash hurt you guys so much? It won't break if you don;t use it. The fact you are worried about breaking almost hints that they you think you might find a use for it at times. And how does it break more easily than an external flash? If it breaks and you didn't want it anyway, who cares?
And NO it doesn't make you look like a cool, real pro to have no pop-up.
