Best external Flash for Panasonic GX7 and Olympus OMD-EM5

Hi guys, still new to this M43 stuff, but I am looking for an external flash that will serve on both the above cameras, and will permit off camera wireless TTL control.

Are there any specific advantages to going for an Olympus unit over a Panasonic, or vice versa or would something like a Metz unit be the best best ?

I want something with a decent ish guide number, but it doesn't have to be a terribly powerful unit (lets face it, anything is an improvement power wise over the supplied flashes on the GX7 and EM5), with bounce capability and obviously wireless control. Prefer it to not be something huge like my Nikon SB910 if possible.

Anyone any ideas ?
