Something is weird...when I did a Google search I came up with an add from the same people, and it said that the 724AFM was Nikon dedicated TTL:

Also, looking at your Ebay link, they have a *** beside the listing which includes the Z1, but they don't say what the *** refers to (usually it means there's a footnote which explains some limitation).

I'd go back to the seller and ask what's going on as they made the claim that it would work with your camera...maybe it will only work with your camera in manual mode. Do the pins actually seem to line up (the Minolta has a proprietary hotshoe).
