Can FF lenses be used on ASPC cameras?

I'm using the 55 FE with my NEX-7 and have gotten great results.

Actually I wouldn't even say that size is always a drawback with full-frame lenses, if you look at the 35 FE and 55 FE for example. The 55 FE and it's only a touch bigger than the APS-C SEL50, despite the fact they're both f/1.8 lenses.

And, FE 35 is even smaller and lighter than E 35 albeit it helps that it is a stop slower at max aperture. But then, on FF it provides the same FOV and DOF as E 24 does on APSc but at half the length.
