it does not have a manual focus ring, so i don't believe there is any way to make it work on a 4/3 system through adapters.

That's what I thought but I thought I'd run it by y'all. Thanks. I almost bid on it.

In addition to my OM-2n, and OM-PC, I also have the autofocus OM-77 and several nice autofocus lens. Its a shame, but there is no way to make these lens compatible with my 4/3 cameras. I had some great shots with these old film cameras and lens. The manual focus Zuikos work good with the 4/3 system.
