The OM Zuikos have a several mm thick adapter to put them at the right focal 
distance on an E-camera. The D-Zuikos would need a negative several mm thick 
adapter to focus at infinity.

I have not seen or heard of anyone trying this, probably because the DZ
lenses need power to focus, and after first reading you message  I was
going to say absolutely no point in trying, but maybe it would create a
lot of fish eye style images as they are not designed to cover the full
35mm frame.
