Hello, this is my first post on these forums. Be gentle...

Down to buisness. I recently got an Olympus Micro 4/3 PEN E-P2 with an M.Zuiko 14-42mm lens.

Something i've noticed with the mirrorless lenses for olympus and panasonic is that they're kind pricey, and after this camera purchase i'm about broke.
So considering my parents have and old Minolta x-700 with a 28-70mm minolta lens and a fixed 125mm Rokkor lens,I figured i'd look for some lens adapters for my camera.

Well, I found a few, mostly on amazon and Ebay. According to the reviews on the one that are most popular, they work great for minolta MD lenses.
Adn that's where my issue is. The two lenses I have are MC mounts, and from what i've read, the more popular adapters tend to have a loose fit with those lenses, or even have them fall out all together.

So ladies and gents, do you guys have any recommendations on Minolta adapters that would for sure work great for my Olympus?
