Self auto flash reccomendation

I've discovered only recently this topic and I'm delighted high sync speed limit can be overcome. I'm really disappointed in fill capabilities of E-PL1's built in flash against a brightly lit background, especially in the summer. I'd like to try some flash that has self auto, but I'm having trouble finding a smaller one. Nikon SB-30 would be the perfect choice, but it's very hard to find. Can anyone recommend another small flash? I've searched Guy Parsons' and Michael Meissner's flash lists, but there are only a few self auto small flashes... Could Metz 20 C-2 do the daylight fill for subjects up to five meters? Looking at the back of that flash, I'm a bit confused by 20 C-2's lack of F8 setting. F5.6 at ISO100 needs a bit more than 1/320 outdoors.
