Default Minolta 7Hi & stuff

I am about to take the plunge and buy a Minolta 7Hi. I am looking for advice from Minolta users as to what accessories I ought to be buying, such as extra CF card (SanDisk 256MB Ultra CF ?), batteries, dc charger, ac adapter, card reader, case, etc. This will be my first digital, so I value your opinions. If you can I'm looging for specific brand names that you would recommend.

For batteries go to Walmart and get the Rayovac 1700-1800mAh and their fast 1-hr charger. The one that come with the camera is only average, and would not charged as fast as the Rayovac

For filter get the 'thin' line series from one of the more reknown brand such as the B&W or others. A standard thikness filter will vignette at 28mm!

Almost any flash will work Lexar, Sandisk, Ridata, SimpleTec, etc... you don't need a high speed one (ie x24) unless you want to explore the raw data mode. If you do go for the faster device, the IBM microdrive is also a good choice since it's the fastest and cheapest (if you can overcome the fear of putting all your eggs in 1 basket), and the D7's are perfect for it because of its cheap battery source.

Get a camera bag too. Lowe pro or tamrac are good bets. I bought the lowepro Nova 3 one same size as tamrac sys 3 one. but 15.00 cheaper. Wanted room for batteries flash and other things. not that small not that big either. paid like 34.95 for it.
