LX-100 Maximum flash sync speed? Wide angle converter?

Does anyone know what the max flash sync speed is? Is it possible to use fill-in flash at high speeds?

Other question. I loved to use my now old LX-3 + the wide angle converter. Since the LX-100 at 24mm is f1.7 it would be great to be able to add a 0,8 or 0,7 wide angle converter. Can a adapter ring added?

Thanks!

I've just tried and the LX100 can light the full image all the way up to the maximum speed of the mechanical shutter (1/4000th).

I don't know about adaptor lenses yet, though.

Thanks a lot Richard for your quick answer and trying the camera.

That's quite a feat!

How far did you have to close the aperture to enable 1/4000 sync?

Have you checked the sync speed with an external flash, or just the built in one?
