THE best external flash gun for my K1?

Hi guys,

I should get my camera early next week and will need an external flash. What do you recommend? I would like something that does not over heat, something reliable and light as my former Nikon SB600.  I would like the head to rotate completely. Oh, and a unit that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I am looking into starting to get into weddings so I would like to shoot with the flash on a separate stand several feet away.  With the high iso capability of the K1 I don't think I need a very powerful flash, like I said, my priority is a light weight unit but totally reliable. I have no clue what is available for pentax and it will take me many many months to get to know what's out there for the brand.

Thank you.
