    Question How do I mount Panasonic M4/3 Lens on Nikon DSLR?

    Hi all,

    As above, how do I mount Panasonic M4/3 Lens on Nikon DSLR?

    We recently bought a Nikon D5300 with two lens, but we are hoping to use our old Panasonic Micro 4/3 lens (35mm and 14-55m) on the DLSR.

    May I know what do I need? And what are the consequences (e.g. loss of details etc).

    Thanks!

    Not possible as the register distance for m43 mount is shorter than nikon f mount (m43 is mirrorless) so it cant be adapted. Also the image circle for four thirds or m43 is smaller than aps-c size for nikon so it won't cover the full sensor on the nikon.

    The reverse is possible though, adapting nikon lens to m43 using an adapter. If you're using a G lens which lacks an aperture ring you'll need an adapter which can physically adjust the aperture. No autofocus or electronic control of the lens though.

    In summary, the micro 4/3 lens will jam the mirror in the Nikon DSLR

    This link will give you the idea why M4/3 lenses cannot be mounted on Nikon body. Note the registration table that's attached.
