Any workarounds for G1 X III external speedlight flash sync?

Hi all,

I'm considering picking up the G1 X III as a camera to take with me everywhere. It has just about all the features I'm looking for in a compact zoom. But the external max flash sync of 1/250 seconds is really disappointing for a camera with a 1/2000 second leaf shutter. I hear the internal flash can sync up to 1/2000 seconds without any problem, so my question is: would it be possible to trigger external speedlights in optical slave mode at speeds up to 1/2000 second using the built-in flash? Have any G1 X III owners tried this?

Thanks!

Josh
