For a head and shoulders shot (I’m giving 2 feet for the subject size which will be a looser framing) you would be about 5 ft from the subject with a 55mm lens.

Can old lenses be used on the Nikon D3200?

Two useful points regarding the use of old lenses on the D3200… First, Nikon claims that non-AI lenses (those made before 1978) cannot be used at all on this camera. My D3200, the three ancient non-AI lenses that I own, and I, very much disagree.

Also AI or AI-S lenses won’t meter on the D3xxx and the D5xxx bodies. I don’t think the D3200 will control the aperture at all on any non-CPU lenses. You can, of course, only use such lenses in “M” mode.

Will a Nikon 3200 meter with non-CPU lenses?
