The only real advantage of the new Metz is it can do Master mode (Canon/Nikon only)

I have both the 50AF-1 and 58 AF-2 flashes

The 50AF-1 is a good deal right now and you can use it as a manual Servo flash (ie use the onboard flash to fire the unit) you'll have to set the power output yourself on the flash (not a problem quick and easy to do) and it is obviously a well featured hot shoe flash. The extra bits on the new 52 model look nice but come with a higher price and I don't think it's worth it myself (I also prefer buttons v touchscreen)

I think on balance the 50AF-1 is right for you that is what I would get myself in your situation.
