I am looking into a variety of affordable film SLRs,

Through years of collecting lenses, affordable SLRs would be m42 and SR mount, then K mount.

and the Olympus came under my radar but I cannot seem to ascertain if one can adapt lenses from other mounts to it.

Here is a custom adapter, it adds 8mm making it a macro.

Right, but I had had in mind the reverse: M42 to Olympus OM.

Right now my alternate is something like the Canon AE-1 (I did find adapters), though I am open to suggestions.

Olympus film bodies are sought after as well as the AE-1 so you will be paying a little more.

Yes, I am now leaning more towards Minolta in fact. Something like the X-370 or X-570. There are models in good shape for decent prices.
