Default Which Sony Flash?

I need to purchase a flash for my A6000 but I'm not sure which I need to get.

I do a lot of event shooting for my parish and it's affiliated groups so I'm looking for a good flash. Sony has the HVLF60M and the 43M but I'm wondering if a third party flash like a Nissin i40 might be better?

Sure would be interested in seeing what other A6000 users are utilizing.

If you are looking at these two Sony flashes, I think that the Nissin is too small.
Have you looked at Yongnuo flashes, a lot of guys are very satisfied with them. You get a lot for your money. Maybe Phottix, they get good reviews.

I've only looked at the Nissin as I am familiar with the brand. I'll take a look at the others.
