Yes, they will work, but your sensor will automatically be set to the crop mode so only the centered half of the sensor will record the image.

This is the reverse of when Nikon introduced their production line digital cameras. Every one had 35mm frame lenses (now labeled FX) and there was half of the projected image thrown out.

You might find The DX and FX Formats interesting and helpful.
