That's not possible. You cant adapt ur MTF lens to F mount (Nikon). What you can do is adapt F mount lenses to your panasonic body.

Dun think any makers will want to make such an adapter.

Micro43 lens has a shorter flange focusing distance, you cannot cross adapt onto dslr unless the manufacturer makes an optical adapter. And that is provided the lens does not have a very protruding rear recess. And with electronics now controlling focusing etc, end up needing a complicated electronic adapter. And the fact that the image circle of an M43 lens is smaller and might not cover the bigger D3100 sensor..
