Default External flash recommendation for Minolta Dimage 7 series?

I have just purchased a used Minolta Dimage 7. I am eager to have a more powerful flash than the integrated unit with less strain on the camera's batteries. I know Minolta makes 2 or 3 units for this camera, but I'd be interested in knowing if Sunpak, Metz, or Vivitar (for example) have any flash units designed for this camera. I **DON'T** want to lose any functionality by going to a non-Minolta flash (in other words, I want all the flash-automation features to work - power zoom, flash control by the camera, etc.). The flash manufacturer's websites don't seem to offer ANY information on what flashes and features they offer for my Minolta. Any suggestions appreciated!

You might want to check out Metz or Sigma:

This unit works on both Minolta and Canon (and Nikon as well!)
