RX1 Flash Sync Speed with Sony HVL-F20AM

Hi, I'll try to answer one of your questions regarding flash sync speeds. I've tried Sony's compact HVL-F20AM mounted in the RX1's hot shoe via the ADP-MAA adapter (adapts Sony's old hot shoe for which the flash was designed, to the new, standard hot shoe). This flash will sync all the way up to the RX1's maximum shutter speed of 1/4000s.

Hi,...

1- Is there any flash that you can put on the hot shoe that can make use of the high sync flash of the RX1? From what I thought, there is a limitation of the Flash unit for sync speed usually 200 or 250, or am I completely wrong?
