    Bare with me here.. Is it possible to mount m43 glass to a Nikon F mount? I want to use an old DSLR with a 1.5x crop sensor (Fuji) but don't have any prime lenses.

    If there were an adapter, it might be technically feasible, but you would not have coverage of the entire image circle so you'd have to crop your image.

    I've read reviews where they try using DX lenses on FX bodies, and that's what happens. The outer area outside the image circle is basically dark because there's no light hitting the sensor.

    No. What you would end up having is a image circle that doesn't cover the whole sensor (4/3 sensor is smaller than APC), wide open (no way to control aperture), with no way to power the focusing motor (no electronic connection), and on the equivalent of extension tubes (farther register distance).
