Question about Sigma 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 lens for Olympus OM
If it's a Four-Thirds mount lens then yes, no problem.
But otherwise if it's for the 35mm OM mount then not without an OM to Four-Thirds adapter. They're cheap and widely available directly from Chinese suppliers on eBay and they do exactly the same thing as the ridiculously expensive OM original item. You will need to manually focus with the aperture wide open and then remember to stop down to the desired aperture before shooting.
As long as you check suppliers' feedback first, then you should be OK; I've bought from such suppliers for years and have had fewer problems than buying products in my own country. I've used a variety of suppliers but most often return to Phoebe-G and receive my items in about a week to ten days, but goods have occasionally taken as few as three days to arrive in London.

Are you sure you bought a lens with Canon AF mount? To me it sounds like you got one with a mount for a different camera.
Does the mount on the lens look like this?
If it doesn't, you got the wrong version of the lens. If it does look like the mount in the picture, your just mounting it incorrectly.
If you hold the camera with the lens mount facing you, the red marker on the lens should be in the 12 o'clock position, lining up with the red marker on the lens mount on the camera. The turn the lens clock wise, about an 8'th of a full turn, and the lens should click into place.
I hope this help you!
