If you want to undertake this "on the cheap", see my recent post of the 
Elmarit-R 28 on my Oly E-510.  Focusing is problematic, but gets better with 
longer lenses. The lens provides an image equivalent to one of twice its 
focal length on a normal 35mm film camera.

If you want to do it right, see Howard Cummer's recent posts of converting R 
lenses for use on full-frame Nikon DSLRs. Nice, but expensive.
