Sounds like you'll need an adapter. OM prime lenses go well with FT but I'm not so sure about zooms.

Yes, you will need an OM/Four thirds adaptor but you can get them for around 10. OM zooms work fine. Most of my photography is done with legacy lenses.

In my OM using decades I tried Olympus, Vivitar and Sigma zooms but never found any worth keeping.
