Yes. All Nikon SLR lens' will fit all SLR camera bodies, whether it is a Digital or Film. It's just that DX lens' put on an FX body, will have a reduced coverage since they are different formats. All DX lens' will fit all DX bodies.

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 D… see more 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 ;-)).

You can visit the Nikon site and see your lens's compatibility with the D 3000. You may have to use the Manual setting for your camera, but the Nikon lens chart will show you exactly what lenses will work with you camera. Happy shooting.

One of the finest features about Nikon is that they respect and value their customers, not like other brands who care nothing on those people who invest fortunes buying their lenses only to discover than in a few years, they are obsolete!!

(I don´t mention the companies but I'm sure everybody knows to whom I'm referring to). Nikon launched the F lens mount in 1959 with their now classic film camera, the Nikon F. Please read the celebration on the 75 millionth lens sold by Nikon with the same mount, good for all Nikon cameras from the F through the recent D3200 and D5200 and all in between!!! Check http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/12/17/nikkor-75-milionth-nikkor?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=generic
And rest assure, Nikon will NEVER NEVER let you down. Don't even consider for one millisecond buying another brand of camera or lenses. Good luck and greetings from Colombia. see less
