There are a bunch of different factors, but yes, you can adapt both Minolta AF and Minolt MC/MD lenses to micro four-thirds--you can adapt practically every SLR mount to micro four-thirds with simple rings, and with an Olympus body you'll have stabilization as well.

Here's the thing about crop factor: The image from a crop body sensor is only magnified 1.5x or 2.0x more when it is displayed at the same viewing size as an image from a 35mm full frame camera. If you take an image made by a 36x24 mm sensor and display it at 6x4 inches, you magnify the image 4.23X. If you take an image made by a 2.0x crop factor µ4/3 ...
