RX1 Remote Flash with 1/2000-1/4000 s Shutter Speed

Hi, all,

I am interested in buying the RX1. I have already owned the A7R and A7. The only reason for me to buy the RX1 is because of the leaf shutter that allows very high flash sync speed, which gives me 3-4 stops more flash power.

But I want to use the flash remotely too. And I am not familiar with how to maintain 1/2000-1/4000s flash sync speed with remote trigger (because I have only been used to 1/250s).

I mostly cared about the 1/2000s at F2. So if a remote trigger work at 1/2000s would be fine.

Can normal slave trigger sync at 1/2000s?

I suppose no? If so, what kind of remote trigger solution should I use? Any budget solution?
