Ok. I am looking for the smallest flash to do the following:

I have both an FM and an F4. I need the smallest possible flash that will let me do fill on both the FM and F4. On the F4 obviously it would be balanced TTL fill. On the FM I imagine it would be the very imprecise auto mode 1-2 stops under type approach.

My initial thought was perhaps an SB-23 but apparently the SB-23 won't do Auto. Is the SB-22 (much bigger) my only choice? Small is really important here.

I'm not interested in a replacement for my Vivitar 285 right now. I'm looking for something really small.

I'm trying to develop a nice little one body, one lens, one little flash concept here, starring mainly the FM, but with a flash that will also work nicely with the F4 when necessary. I suppose I would consider something that didn't interface perfectly with the F4 if it fit all of my other criteria.

Any thoughts?
