SB-500 or SB-700 for Z50?

I have 3rd party flash but since it does not have high speed sync so for my Z50, I'm looking at either SB-500 and SB-700. The prices are very close so it's basically a toss-up.

I read that like any other Speedlights, SB-700 AF assist light does not work with mirrorless?

SB-700 has diffusion dome, filters, built-in bounce card etc but the compact size of SB-500 is also attractive. But then, I have to adjust flash compensation via the camera menu on SB-500.

Does anyone have both of these flashes?
