I just got mine. It's the same size as the 28-300mm FX lens. Take this lens along with the 12-24mm f/4 or 10-24mm, and the 35mm f/1.8 and you've got all you need for just about everything. Throw in a flash and you're done. I also require a dedicated macro, but that's my thing. I like this lens on a D7000, and it works just fine on the D3200.
