Best value in a compatible flash for the Z5

Considering a flash unit for my fairly new Z5. I always prefer natural light, but there are occasional times I would need flash. I read the Thom Hogan recommendation of the SB-500. They seem to be back ordered and restock is questionable. Would welcome any suggestions of reasonably priced units that would be compatible with the Z5 and allow bounce flash. Curious about the Godex units. Some excellent reviews others complain about plastic mount breaking. I see they have 3 options. I never had one but they seem to be selling. This is for amateur and mostly indoor photography plus some evening fill flash. I do have an older SB-600 from my D300s but it on the Z5 even bouncing it overexposes like crazy. If anyone has one they can recommend would appreciate it. Thanks
