OM lens on a digital camera?

I recently acquired an Olympus OM, 65-200 mm f4 manual lens in near mint condition. I was surprised at how sharp it is. Has anyone used OM lenses on a digital camera? I thought I might try it with a dumb adapter on a EM1 v1 to see how it does.

Any info you might share about adapting OM lenses to digital that you would care to share would be appreciated. Also anything about this specific lens. I have several E. Zuiko 4/3 lenses that I use on m4/3, including the stellar 50-200 mm f2.8-4, and of course, some native m4/3 lenses, so I don't really need to do this, but.....why not?

Has anyone tried it? What are the pros and cons? The older lenses will have older coatings, but as I recall some of them are quite sharp. Anyway, thought I might give it a try.

Peace.

John
