Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of lens mounts to fit different brands of cameras. If the lens has a Nikon mount then it will work on the D3200. If it has some other mount then it will not work.

    If you're buying the lens new, it should be marked on the box. If you're looking at a used Vivitar lens, there will be a letter somewhere around the lens mount, "N" for Nikon, "P" for Pentax, and so on.

How can I determine which Sigma and Tamron lenses will work with my Nikon D3200? (I know they have to fit my Nikon F mount.)


There are three things you have to consider when getting lenses for the D3200.

First, you already know that the lens has to have the Nikon F mount.

Second, in order to autofocus, the lens must have a focus motor since the D3200 doesn't have one itself. Sigma designates lenses with the focus motor as HSM. Tamron designates theirs as USD. Lenses that don't have the focus motor will still work with the D3200, you just have to focus manually.

Third, the lens must have the electronics to communicate with the camera in order for the exposure meter to work. Any Sigma or Tamron lenses designed for digital cameras will have the electronics. Older mechanical lenses, including those from Nikon, will still work with the D3200, but you must set the exposure manually, without any help from the camera's light meter.

I have an old Vivitar 215 flash, still working. Can I use it with my Nikon D3200?


Not without using something like the Wein Safe-Sync to isolate the flash from the camera. The flash's trigger voltage can otherwise fry the camera.

Nikon D5100 vs Nikon D3200


They both take superb pictures. The D3200 is slightly easier to learn how to use, while the D5100 is easier to use once you learn it. That is, the D3200's menus will guide you through all its settings, while with the D5100 you can change those settings with less work once you learn the proper buttons to push. The D3200 has a higher resolution, but even the D5100 will take photos that can be enlarged to 8x10 and larger.

I suggest you go to a good camera store and try them both out. See which one better fits your hands. You don't want to buy a camera based on specs, or other people's opinions. You want a camera that best works for YOU. Having said that, the D3200 is probably a better first SLR. However, try them both out and choose the one that's better for YOU.

I have a Nikon D40x and purchased the AF nikkor 50 mm f/1.8D lens a couple years ago, but find that it can only be focused manually. Is there any way to "turn on" the autofocus? I have not had...


Sorry, but the D40x lacks an autofocus motor, depending on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses AF-S. This particular lens does not have such a motor, relying on the camera to have one. The only 50mm lens currently available with an autofocus motor is this one:
http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Camera-Lenses/2180/AF-S-NIKKOR-50mm-f%252F1.4G.html

Earlier this week the Nikon web site listed a new 50mm F1.8 lens with an autofocus motor, but then it was removed. Hopefully they will officially announce this lens soon.

LOOKING FOR A Nikon Normal AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D Autofocus Lens WITH VR.


There is no such thing. You can see a full list of current Nikon lenses at
http://www.nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Camera-Lenses/index.page

You can see a list of current and old Nikon autofocus lenses at
http://www.bythom.com/nikkordb.htm

You'll see that no 50mm Nikon lens has ever had VR.

WILL THIS MODEL JELL WELL WITH THE NIKON 50mm LENSES (NORMAL) & OTHER BRANDS OF 50mm LENSES (NORMAL) THAT IS WITH NIKON D90 DSLR


Hello,
The Nikon D90 works well with the Nikon AF 50mm lenses and most other brand Nikon fit AF lenses. If they are not AF you will lose autofocus and metering.
Do you know that on the D90 the lens becomes a 75mm but the aperture stays the same, so for instance the 50mm f/1.8 is a 75mm f/1.8.

Can't autofocus Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens


The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.
