Can you use a non aperature ring lens with a LX

I know this is a long shot but has anyone mounted a 100mm d fa on a LX and had success in auto mode? My hope is that it would default to 2.8f and meter the shot. I have not acquired a weather resistant lens and shoot both digital and film. I would love to make my next lens purchase cover WR and full frame. And the real long shot, any work a rounds to be able to change the aperture while mounted on a LX? And the real long shot could it make me more handsome?
