    Hello All,
    I have a E-PL1 and I want to figure out what lens adapter I need.

    My father has an old Minolta Maxxum 9000 with its kit 35-70mm lens. Seems like an interesting lens to mount on my Olympus. I beleive I need this adapter but I'm not sure.

    Any help from the experts would be greatly appreciated! Sorry for the newb question!

    That looks like the right kind of adapter. BTW, I have the same lens for my Sony A900.

    I have this one and spent less than $30. I use it with a Minolta 50mm f/1.7 and a LensBaby for Sony and it works perfectly. I bought mine from this seller and I believe both seller and adapter have been favorably reviewed by others on this site.

    thanks for the help guys! My dad was surprised to hear how I wanted to use his 25 year old lens. His old Minolta 4000AF flash even worked too!
