Short answer...yes. Any lens designed for APS-C sized cameras will fit the D3200.

Unfortunately that's not strictly true. The D3200 AFAIK doesn't have an in-built focus screw, so if you want AF from a lens, you need to ensure it has its own focus motor in the lens.

I can't for some reason get the specs up from the Tamron site on this particular lens - I'd advise you to check it as some of the cheaper lenses do lack a motor. I'm guessing this probably has one, but in your shoes I'd make sure before ordering.

Edit: the specs have come up and there are two versions of this lens - A14N & A14NII - you need the latter of these two, which does have a motor - the other version will mount, but only work in manual focus.

What a decision !!! If you get the Camera above with the standard lens

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nikon-D3200-Digital-Camera-18-55mm/dp/B007VBGTX8/ref=sr_...


or Body only with a stronger lens

But don't want to go up too much more in price ????

The trouble with getting an APS-C DSLR like the Nikon and a cheap 10X zoom lens is that you almost get the worst of all worlds. The camera's big and heavy - and the lens is too - yet you're not going to get great quality pictures because the lens is a compromise. So you're carrying around a bulky bit of kit and not getting much reward.

If you want an interchangeable lens camera but you also want an "all-purpose" lens it makes sense to go with a smaller format than APS-C. Have you looked at the Panasonic m4/3 range? You can get the same lens range in a much smaller package without compromising image quality.

Let me tempt you a bit. Canon DSLRs do not have any trouble with focusing any lens - for atavistic in-camera screw drive is not met in these cameras. Any APS-c will work with any of EF or EF-s lens made by Canon, and any digital era EF or EF-s lens made by any other company.

Translation (I think): Canon DSLRs work with those nasty screw-drive lenses - unlike entry-level Nikons.

Er, I'd still go with Nikon, thanks.
