Mitros series flashes offer top end features, and unlike many Chinese made flashes, the Mitros are built from high quality components and come with a 2 year warranty.
The Sony Mitros provides Sony Optical Wireless Triggering with Master and Slave mode. Though please note, this in not the Mitros+ version with radio based transceivers built in. The Sony Mitros+ is still yet to come, and they generally retail for $100 more than the Mitros.
The Mitros is ideal to use with the excellent Phottix Odin TTL radio triggers though.

Another point to note is that the Sony Mitros come with the iIso/Minolta compatible foot. This is ideal to mount directly on the current Sony Odin TTL radio receivers, as they also still use the Minolta style hotshoe.
Though owners of the many recent Sony cameras, now using the Multi Interface hotshoe, will need to use an adapter to mount the Mitros onto the cameras hotshoe .
This makes for an interesting situation, and its clear Phottix will eventually need to change the Mitros and Odin to the Multi Interface Shoe at some point as well.
