Macro flash recomendation, D700 & Sigma 150

I like to shoot macro now and again and have a superb lens for this purpose, a Sigma 150mm macro OS. I have also bought one or two gadgets in my time including better tripods and macro focussing rails. I have never bought a macro flash but I think I need to bite the bullet and get one despite the cost. I have used a regualr flash on a flash cord but that is a bit of a compromise.

Any recommendations? Do I need to buy Nikon? Is Nikon even the best choice for the Sigma 150? Is there anything I should be aware of that I may not have thought of?

Cheers!

b.t.w. I will also post in the Nikon lens forum and a specialist flash forum if I find one. Sorry if you see it more than once.
