vivitar 28-85mm 3.5-4.5 manual lens

i have just thought about using this lens on my m43 cameras ,mainly for macro work

Can you get an adaptor mount for minolta to m43 ,and is it worth the expense ie quality of lens, also what kind of magnification in macro will i get ?

i think it only works in macro at 85mm and as close as 2ft distance .

also could anyone tell me how to determine what mount it is base cap says minolta but i think they also made a canon mount as well?

any info much appreciated
