Lens is simply missing the back half. It's not a mount, just a broken lens.

Use an F-Mount AF-S or AF-I lens to get the most from your camera. The AF-I is the older version of the current AF-S. This means the lens has an internal auto-focus motor, which the D3200 needs if you want auto-focus. You can use other lenses, but with some kind of limitation depending on the lens. A good place to check if the lens is fully compatible is ...

The kind of lenses you need depend a lot on what and how you like to shoot, and how limited you are by your budget. Basic features, like focal length, maximum aperture, and stabilization will be determined by your usage. See this basic guide to lenses for explanations of lens features and what they mean in practical terms. You may also want to see Lens ...

If you want all around lens and don't want to change the lens then you can buy Nikon 18-300mm or 18-200mm lens. Kit lens 18-55mm is good general purpose lens with good quality. For portrait and landscape you can buy Nikon 16-85mm lens. For telephoto you can buy 70-300mm if you are on tight budget or you can buy 70-200 f4 or f2.8 if you can afford it.

You don't have to replace the mount and can get away with a simple ring adapter if you adapt the lens to a mount with a shallower registration with mirrorless cameras, such as Sony NEX, Fuji X, Canon EOS M, or micro four-thirds. For mirror clearance with a Canon prosumer full frame, you can also, if you don't care about resale of the camera, and want to use ...

I have had this happen twice on my D800. To release the lens is simple. There is a service port, or cut-out, that is visible in front of the lens release. A thin bladed screw driver inserted into this port, with the lens or body turning at the same time will separate the two. If nothing else, you now only have to send the body into Nikon. I feel the pin in ...

That is a Canon FD mount lens. While you could find an adapter to mount it on a D3200, it's problematic, even for adapting onto a Canon dSLR. The main problem here is the registration distance. This is the distance that the lens is held by the mount away from the image plane (the sensor, in the case of a dSLR). This distance varies between mount systems, ...

That is an FD lens which was made for Canon. You'll need to purchase an FD to F mount, which you should be able to find on ebay for less than $50. I'd advise you get one with glass so you can continue to focus to infinity.

There's an interesting thread here on Reddit. The best comment is from the owner of fdtoef.com where they say: The first challenge is how to keep the adapter on the FD body, a lock like the FDn lenses. The FDn is too complicated for that amount of space, so it would need to be the original breech-lock approach. Assuming that the body FD mounting was ...

Yes, that adapter should let you use a Nikon F-mount lens on an Canon EF-mount body, including the 500N. I don't think you can find an equivalent adapter to go the other way (i.e. Canon lens on a Nikon body). Please note the long list of caveats on the linked page: the lens will work in manual focus only (with focus confirmation), you need to adjust ...

Consider Sony A-mount Your Tamron lens is Minolta AF mount. This is, in fact, the same lens mount that Sony's A-mount SLT cameras use, so if it's absolutely imperative that you use this lens, Sony's A-mount cameras would not require an adapter and would give the highest level of compatibility (including autofocus). However, to most of us, a third-party ...
