Look for older Metz Mecablitz, I have a FM2 w/MD and a Metz 402 Mecablitz--great combo and the Metz is good upto 100 ft but can be brought down for close portraits.

Not the SB-N5 it's for Nikon 1 cameras. Any of the older speedlights are fine, see if you can find a used SB 21 or even a SB 600 (a little overkill).

The new SB-N5 was specifically created for the Nikon 1 V1, is not part of the CLS. However, you can set the SB-900 to SU-4 in order to convert it in a optical slave but, the SB-900 can only be set in Manual mode.

If you're working in less than adequate light while creating a Motion Snapshot or using Smart Photo Selector, attach the Speedlight and keep everything exposed properly. The SB-N5 Speedlight steps up to serve as a continuous light source for up to six seconds.

The Nikon 1 V1 can take up to 5 frames per second while the shutter-release button is held down. The flash can double as a continuous light source illuminating for six seconds during both Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector modes.

It will not fit as it is designed for the V1, take it back to where you bought it and either get a refund or exchange it for a SB-700.
