I want to buy Panasonic Lumix G5 and have Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II Macro Nikon-f which I used for my old Nikon D 3000.
Will it work with Lumix G5 without any disabilities?? do I need any adapter?

Please help with this...!!!

No, there will be "disabilities". Specifically, you will lose all electronic control of the lens. More specifically, you will lose AF, IS, electronic aperture control, etc.

And yes, you need an adapter - Mark

So, which is the equivalent lense you will suggest for Lumix G5 to replace old tamron 18-200mm. And with which i dont lose any capabilities.

Thank you...

I'm a little out of my area of expertise here, but I know of very few super-zoom lenses for the micro4/3 system. One option is a Panasonic 14-140mm f/4-5.8, with which will be roughly equivalent to your Tamron lens on the Nikon. It would give you a 28-280mm, whereas the Tamron was a 27-300mm equivalent. Getting two separate lenses might give you better image quality but you'll have to change lenses between a standard and telephoto zoom.
