    You'd need an OM to 4/3 adapter which are readily available. It should work fine. Does it have an aperture setting ring? That'd help.

      Also, be aware of the 2X crop factor. So a 17mm lens will give the angle of view of a 34mm lens on a 35mm film camera. So 17mm is not an ultrawide on on a four-thirds camera.
