Default 7000 Maxxum Flash on a Dimage 7HI?

I am looking at buying a Minolta Dimage 7hi but not sure about buying the flash they offer. I have a Minolta 7000 Maxxum camera with the Maxxum 2800 AF external flash. My question is: Can I use my existing flash on the Dimage 7hi or do I have to buy one of the recommended flash units?
Thanks...
Rex

According to my local salesman (who may or may not be blowing smoke), the flash will work, but may not have all the features that the Dimage offers. The only flashes that enable ALL the Dimage's features are the 3600 and 5600 HS (D) units. According to the schmoe at the local store, it wouldn't hurt to try.

Only Minolta with 'D' suffix flashes will work with their Dimage, but check out the Sigma as well:
