Thanks for any advice.

I see the choice as two different pathways serving two different goals.

By using a fully automatic flash you can immediately get usable results without really knowing what is going on 'behind the scenes'. And autoflash is almost indispensable for fast-changing stuff like shooting kids running around the house.

By using a manual flash you will have difficulty 'getting it right' in many situations, but you will be forced to learn some important and useful stuff along the way.

Ideally you should have both manual and autoflash at your disposal for different purposes. The Metz provides both, but the Yongnuo doesn't.
