Best 4/3 camera for use with old Minolta Rokkor Lenses

I have an old set of Minolta Rokkor lenses that I've been looking to make use of. 58mm 1.2, 135 F2, and a few others.

I've been eyeing the Panasonic GF-1, and the Olympus EP series. And now just came across the Sony NEX5.

I've been a SLR user for years, now using a Canon 5D2. The old Minolta glass doesn't mount well on the Canon. I'm also looking to have a more compact kit to carry around as well with a 4/3 camera.

Is it simply a preference issue, or does either the GF1, EP, or NEX work better with the old Minolta glass? In particular, which camera will it be easiest to manually focus?

Thanks.
