    With the obvious caveats that autofocus lenses will have to be focused manually and that the G series will not have aperture control.

    To be more precise, the FM and FE bodies can mount older non Ai lenses also by pushing down the pin, which I think is beneficial.

    Today's lenses without the aperture ring won't be adjustable and the DX lenses won't cover the whole frame with an image.

    Try putting a DX 18-55 on a full frame SLR. It shoots everything at f32, but at 18mm is super wide.

    *Some* of the DX lenses will cover full-frame even though they aren't designed to do so (the 18-55mm is one, I had one once and it would cover a 35mm frame from 24mm to 55mm). However, I'm not aware of any DX lenses that aren't also G-series, therefore they will not allow aperture adjustment on cameras like the FM. A better modern super-wide lens for the FM would be the AF-Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D, which is a full-frame lens with an aperture ring.
