Im sure this has been asked before but what flash do you guys use for the Sony A7 or A7r? I just bought a A7. I dont mind using a non sony brand in its standard hot shoe im just looking for the best option.

I bought a Sony 20m mainly because I don't usually need a high powered high featured flash and the small size of the A7R is one of the main selling points for me so having a flash I can fit in my shirt pocket is a big benefit.  Just got it last night so I haven't used it extensively, but it seems capable for what it is, somewhere in between a built in flash and a "real" flash.

I may also pick up a F43M if I think I'll get some use out of it, but I'm mostly a landscape photographer, I just want a flash for casual candids, so I probably don't really need anything better than the 20m.  Though if I do pick up a higher end flash, I can use the 20m to trigger it if I want, which is a bonus.

Seems to me that using a standard hot shoe would be missing out on some benefits (though probably gaining in other areas), but someone else can probably chime in better than I on that.
