What flash should I get for the K5?

I still got the K5, also a little bit of LBA, with the 70mm Limited HD being the latest addition. But there are times when even the great low light capability is not enough, so I need to get a flash.

For now I need it mainly for indoor, kids party style of pics, in poorly lit homes of my friends. I suppose I need to bounce flash and stuff - so far improvised with small cigars packages mounted on the flash.

In the future I'd like to look into strobist / wireless stuff, so whatever I get now I'd like to not be totally useless later.

Based on basic features and looking to pay "not that much" I'd say I'm looking at either the Sigma EF-610 DG ST or the Metz 44 AF-1.

Am I missing something by buying any of these?
