Flash recommendation for the S5II/S1R is requested

Flash recommendation for the S5II/S1R is requested. - I have read that Lumix and Olympus flash units share the same TTL compatibility. Is this true, and if so, what do you recommend for a small flash unit to use for casual indoor family photos, where TTL flash metering can be used? Also, does anyone have experience with the affordable Godox TT350O Mini Thinklite TTL Flash? Thanks in advance for all advice.
That‘s right, both share the same flash protocoll.
Personely I am using Godox flashes on my Olympus and Panasonic cameras. My smallest flash is the TT350O and it works flawlessly. But I am a manual flash photogapher and not relying on TTL.
If you don‘t need off-camera flashes maybe a Nissin i40 as on-camera is an alternative for you.
I have the TT350o as well and I'm happy with it. I use it on camera as well as with the x1t-o transmitter. Works fine with TTL on the S5.
