Using Nikkor 35mm F/1.8 on Panasonic Lumix S5

I would like to seek your advice on using my Nikon 35mm lens on my new S5. Have you been using G mount on L mount? How is the quality and handling on S5 with 35mm lens? Thanks for your insights.

Personally I would rather use native lens - you can buy very good Sigma 35f2 DG DN.

I have my Nikkor 35mm. So, I would like to use it if it is possible. Thanks for your suggestion.

Presumably you are talking about Nikon F mount, type G lens.

If such an adapter existed, it would need an aperture lever actuator for full functionality. Just like the FTZ adapter. I expect it would not be cheap.

Perhaps there are "dumb" adapters, but then you would have to focus manually and shoot f1.8.
