A7R III best TTL flash? Godox V860IIs a.k.a. Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL (S)?


I put in my A7R III preorder. I'm so excited!

I will need a TTL HSS flashgun for when I shoot parties / travel. Which one is the best? I read the Godox V860IIs a.k.a. Flashpoint Zoom Li-on R2 TTL (S) is really good. I would get it with the transmitter, and build a Godox lighting system around it eventually.

Adorama says for this flashgun: "Users of the Sony A7R2 should note that R2 TTL function is still in the stages of development. Please watch for Flashpoint R2 firmware update."

What does that mean? Will this work on-camera as a TTL flash with the A7R III?

Also, I currently have a YN-E3-RT transmitter, two YN 600EX-RT II flashguns and two Canon 600EX-RT flashes. I read that the YN system may work with Sony cameras in manual mode. That would be great as I only use manual in my home studio anyways (never even tried TTL in studio). Will this work? Can you put a YN-E3-RT into the hot shoe of a Sony A7R III directly or do you need some sort of an adapter?
