Yes, seems he was... But Olympus makes those too, so it's the right thread.

John, I found the same with a Vivitar Series 1 24-48mm for my Pentax cameras. Excellent lens! Built like a tank and quite heavy, but very sharp and contrasty for monochrome film, and wonderful earthy colour tones on the dslr. It's a keeper. BTW, there was one for sale here in MD mount...pretty rare lens.
