Difference between normalizePath() and file.path()

Is there an advantage in taking the extra step of converting the file paths from file.path() into canonical form for the platform using normalizePath()? e.g. normalizePath(file.path(...)). Solely using file.path() would suffice a path to be read and I do not notice any big difference between the two.
