I have a D3200 body with a kit lens + a 70-300mm lens that I bought. I'm after a fisheye lens. I'm currently looking at the AF Fisheye Nikkor 10.5mm 1:2.8 G ED DX Lens. I've read a few reviews and it seems to be quite decent. However, I've had bad experiences of buying incompatible lens filters so I just need some sort of comfirmation that the lens and the body is compatible.
I'm buying it from an Ebay auction (probably, after I work to get the money), but Tom's prohibits links to Ebay auctions.

Your AF Fisheye Nikkor 10.5mm 1:2.8 G ED DX Lens will be able to stick it on your D3200 and you can take picture. However it will NOT auto focus.
Nikon have two types of lenses AF & AF-S
AF is used for upper class of DSLR which have built in motor so AF will focus on them. For DSLRs D3200, D5000 and so on, only AF-S lenses will auto focus, or else you'll just have to manually focus. Which is not a big deal actually, enjoy your fish eye!

You may also look at Samyang fish eye lenses for Nikon if you interested in cheaper alternative.

//By the way, I'm a Canon user, so most of these knowledge are based on my memory of reading online articles and threads.

All Nikkor lenses are manufactured by Nikon for Nikon D-SLR cameras or cameras from other manufacturers licenced to use a Nikon mount.

The lens mount on a Canon D-SLR is not compatible with Nikkor lenses, they won't fit without a third-party adapter ring interposed between the lens and the camera lens mount.

Google Search will assist in finding a suitable one.

Uh, the D3200 is a nikon body... so I think you've confused the d3200 for another canon model. Yeah so the D3200 is from nikon, but I'm just unsure of the mount between the lens and the D3200.
