Remote shutter trigger for A7RII/A7RM2: RMT-DSLR1 do not work, RMT-DSLR2: only supports M2/M3

RMT-DSLR1 do not work with newer cameras!

This old remote I've been using do not work with the A7RM2. There is a newer RMT-DSLR2 that's exactly the same as the older one; it only works with M2/M3 but not M4! And is not backward compatible with older A7RM1.

Is Sony purposely obsolete IR remote trigger every two camera gen? It's so wasteful. Sony should make the IR remote programable and can be updated to support newer cameras!

I know I can use the phone app to remotely trigger the A7RM2. But I prefer to have a dedicated remote trigger. Are there better option than the RMT-DSLR2? Maybe one that will not obsolete very soon?
