Default vivitar v minolta

Hi
I have a minolta A1 and im now looking for a flash. My main use would be for indoor sport. I was looking at the Vivitar Flashgun 850AF (80) or the minolta 5600 (275) . I know the minolta is probably better but how close does the vivitar come, i cant seem to find any reviews for the vivitar. Also i just want to snap it on and go, id like everything to be automatic.

Thanks

Darren

I only know of one other flash that is compatible with the Minolta digital camera, the other is the Metz, but it cost more than the Minolta unit: http://www.sigmaphoto.com/html/news/500dg_super.htm
