For many years I have used Vivitar 285 and 283 flash units. They do well and earn money for me. It is possible to get new 285s if you look around for around your price. If you go for an old one make sure the trigger voltage is low enough for your K5.

Be aware that the original Vivitar company is defunct, and the brand now belongs to Sakar, a company which imports cheap Chinese-make photo gear and dumps it into the US market. So, new "Vivitar" flashes have no relation to the ones recommended above.
