Unfortunately using a Panasonic lens on an Olympus camera is not the same as using an Olympus lens.  Many Panasonic lenses correct CA in the camera software.  If the lens is used on an Olympus camera, that will require post processing to remove the CA, which would not be necessary with Olympus lenses.  Olympus does not (and would almost certainly not want to) provide software correction for another companies lenses.  In addition, Olympus uses in camera stabilization which means that Panasonic lenses with lens stabilization are larger than necessary for Olympus cameras.  I believe that most Olympus users would be very happy to use non-Olympus lenses which are optically equivalent to Olympus lenses and of appropriate size.  Most are willing to use Panasonic lenses even given the additional processing required when they offer better performace than available Olympus lenses.
