The new SB 700 might be the one for you

If not, check out the Metz Mecablitz 36 AF-5

Or maybe there is a Nissin flashgun that will do what you want.

If prices are too high, consider a used SB 600 or an equivalent from a third party maker.

Re: recommend a flash gun for my nikon D5000

Buy yourself a second hand SB800. It is the best bang for your buck and if you buy a second hand one you can bargain as well. The SB400 is a waste of time for most people, it can turn or tilt...basically you can't bounce with it, the SB600 is good, but the SB800 is much better and give you more flexiblity and control...the SB900 is expensive, it is awesome but it is expensive and in reality....the SB800 will do you just fine. IF you are willing to use your flash OFF camera, then get a Nissan flash or any flash that would suite your needs and get a cheap radio trigger set and use that as your setup. I still vote for the SB800 tho...LOL
