    Hey guys, I have an EPL-1 that I have been using with both kit lenses. Recently, I bought my first adapted lens. It is a Minolta 50MM 1.7 MD mount. Wanting to leverage the same adapter, I am wanting to get a macro lens. I would prefer a prime; however anything will do as long as it is a true macro.

    So, please make suggestions...

    Minolta 50mm 3.5 macro. Can be found on ebay for under $100 with the 1:1 adapter.

    Any other suggestions? Perhaps a longer focal length?

    There are some great 90mm f2.5 and f2.8 macros which were branded under 'Vivitar', 'Elicar', 'Rokunar', 'Panagor' etc. Great macro lenses and built like a tank. Search ebay using keywords 'minolta 90mm'.
