RX100 and external flash


I understand that RX100 Mark 2 can use Sony's multi-interface shoe flash guns. I have three questions regarding this:

1. Does Mk2 support older units (I have an HVL-F58AM) with ADP-MAA hot shoe adapter?

2. Using a compatible flash gun, can you use wireless flash with off-camera flash units?

3. Can you use the built-in flash in wireless control mode?
3a, This applies to other versions as well, not just Mk2.

I'm on the fence about getting one and while low light performance is important, I'd also like to be able to use it with flash and not get pictures that turn out digicam-like because of the tiny built-in flash.
