Question
Will this fit the same lens as a D3000?
Answer
The short answer is Yes; please see below for the long answer and find that the D3000 and the D3200 have literally the same lens compatibility specifications (by the way, if you can afford the (superior) FX lenses, you should try them out with the D3200 - I've found that my D3200's auto-focus works with several of my D800's FX lenses ;-)). Here are the details from Nikon Technical Manuals:

A) For the D3000:
AF NIKKOR for F3AF not Supported
AF-S, AF-I: All Functions Supported
