The flash is entirely capable of being precisely mixed with ambient light at
any shutter speed or aperture. On auto-flash, the camera decides whether it
thinks you need flash or not. On fill flash, IIRC, it sets the shutter speed
no lower than 1/60th, and on Slow sync, handles lower shutter speeds. (Check
the manual for specifics)

Range for flash is entirely dependent upon aperture. Longest range at f-2.8,
diminshing as the lens is stopped down.
