Kenneth !
This lens has its own servo AF-S "S" being the key letter ! And does not require an driver from the DSLR body .
In most likelihood it should work ! Note that as an AF-S you will be in cropped mode on a DX sensor DSLR v/s an FX DSLR.
Most consumer DSLR are DX format and don't use internal focusing drive pin.. Therefore limiting you to AF-S or AF-S Dx .
Hope this helps ! Tried it on my kids D5000 and seems fine !

Good luck
Serge

Yes, any Nikon lens with a built in focus motor will work on the 3200. This includes the 70-200 vrII

Yes! Although it will feel very heavy on such a light camera.

Yes. Any lens that is AF-S should work. The d3200 does not have a focus motor so it must rely on the lenses that have focus motors to work.

Kenneth, the 70-200 2.8 is a G-series lens and it will function on your D3200 with everything except the auto-focus. Your camera requires the use of AF-S or AF-I lenses to use auto-focus. Nikon's lower-end consumer camera bodies do not have the individual servo motors inside the body the way the higher-end bodies do and therefore they require lenses with the built-in servo motors. If you are willing to focus manually, then this great lens would work fine.
