Minolta AF for Olympus 4/3?

Hi,

I was experimenting with some Sony cameras (A850, A99) and wound up accumulating some equipment. I've since switched back completely to using Olympus and sold on the Sony digital cameras. If anyone is interested in swapping the equipment below for some Olympus equipment let me know. I'm interested in EP2 with 14-42mm lens or E5 or panasonic 12-32mm, or suggest something!

The following is available
Minolta 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 lens.
Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 (older version of the lens)
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 (older version of the lens)
Sigma 28-135 (?) - need to check
Tamron 70-300 f4.0-5.6
Older Minolta flash - film bodies only

Minolta Dynax 5
Minolta Dynax 7
Minolta Dynax 9

From what I can see the film cameras work fine.

I'll post photos if someone is interested.

Photos of the equipment are as follows

(I dont have any images with the 70-300mm, as I only had it a week before I sold the A99. I did try it out and it focussed correctly).

Note the Sony camera reports this in the EXIF file as 28-80mm I think, because it is not a sony or minolta camera. I tended to prefer to use the 24-85mm, because it was lighter on the camera.


70-200mm

Again the EXIF data on a sony camera is incorrectly reported as 70-210 f4. It is a 70-200mm F2.8 sigma, and early model. I will post a photo tonight.
