Panasonic GX8 Flash advice, please

For anyone using the micro-four-thirds cameras that don't have in-camera flashes, I just wondered if you could recommend a cheap, small solution for the GX8, please? I've looked at the Nissin i40, Panasonic DMW-FL360LE & Olympus FL-600R but they all add bulk and weight which I really want to avoid. Any other smaller solutions, please?
Many thanks
Hobbes

PANASONIC DMW-FL360 is an excellent medium sized flash unit, and is identical to the Olympus FL-36 in size, weight, function, etc ... everything but the brand and styling. So check the price for an FL-36 or FL-36R before buying.
The only downside to the FL-36/FL360 is that it only takes two AA cells. This will mean its recycle will slow down in heavy use more quickly and you'll be more likely to need to carry spares. I haven't found it much of a problem at all.
