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

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.

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