I only want it as a more powerful and controllable flash and it will almost certainly be used on auto most of the time
perfect arguments for a Metz 45 series :-)

:OWhich Metz flashguns are we talking about ? When I rang a mail order dealer I was told there were two suitable for the A200,28 AF3 £89 but underpowered or 44 AF4 £129.There is a 36 AF3 at £62 which the same dealer's website says is suitable for Minolta SLR but is it suitable for A200?The 45 series seems to be handle mounted.Am I confusing digital with non digital flashguns here?

yes, it's handle mounted. when a flash is used in auto, then it's not dedicated. Auto mode applies for film camera as well as digital camera.
Handle mount or hotshoe mount is a physical choice. I like handle mount flash because of the stability it adds to the ensemble.

Your salesman probably means "dedicated" when he says "suitable".

I guess I should have worked that one out from your picture......Thanks for the help.I'll think on.
