If the lens is a 35mm Nikon lens it will mount on the F body. As LaGrassa pointed out you may not be able to take advantage of all the functions. The current listing of Nikon lenses includes some with the "DX" designation. While they will mount on an F camera they are not suitable for it as they are optimized for the digital sensor employing a 1.5 crop factor.
