Not sure about wireless, but finding any
decent PC gamepad does seem ridiculously difficult, especially for use with emulators like WinUAE...
As far as the sega master system pads - it probably depends on what games you play - for example, in a game like SWOS, where you need very good response from a gamepad/joystick, the guys at sensiblesoccer.de say that the master system pads are actually not very good at all, even on a real Amiga. The MegaDrive pads however are excellent!
I currently use MegaDrive pads on my real miggy, and also in WinUAE, via an adaptor I made that plugs into the parallel port of my PC. I haven't noticed any lag at all. The good thing about the adaptor is you can use your original Amiga joysticks/gamepads on your PC with WinUAE, much better than using PC based gamepads!
I also made a USB adaptor, but haven't tested it enough yet to notice if there's any lag or not, although I think you get some
lag with most USB pads, same goes for wireless...
If I hear of any decent wireless gamepads I'll let you know.
