Today Phottix has announced it is shipping its highly anticipated Odin II transceiver for Sony to their partners worldwide. The new Odin will allow Sony users with the Multi-Interface Shoe (found on the Sony a7x/a6x bodies) the ability to have TTL and HSS functionality using the Phottix Indra and Mitros+ line of flashes.
I've had the opportunity to use a pre-production version of the Odin II for Sony for several months now. Using it mostly with the Indra500 strobes I've been impressed with the build quality and ease with which you can navigate the menus to make changes on the fly.
You can see the Odin II in action with a variety of Sony cameras in the videos below.
