Sony - A7/A7r wireless flash.

Sony NEX Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review - forums.dpreview.com
I now have the A7/A7r on my shortlist for a "light travel" plan: A camera, 2 or 3 lenses and a small flash to take along on trips where my Canon 1DMKIV and larger EF lenses might be both unpractical and unsafe.

The current EOS-M is the obvious other contender, together with its next incarnation, the M2, whenever it may pop-up.

My current EF lenses can work both in the EOS-M and Sony approaches, via dedicated adapters, both of which (Canon's and Metabones) support AF and IS.

However, Canon's current EOS-M offer has 2 severe drawbacks, as far as my needs go: No wired remote control capability and (I just learned) not currently being supported by PocketWizard's ControlTL system (I have several Control TL units and Speedlites).

I see the A7/A7r feature the wired-remote functionality.

I also see, under "Flash Modes" in the Sony cameras specifications a "wireless" mode listed.

Since those cameras do not feature an in-built flash, this can't be referring to "optical wireless", right?

If not, what are the Sony flashes (if any) that can work under "radio wireless"?

Thank you for any input.
