Short answer: no
The kit lens should have a pinch cap for the front, and a white plastic cap that just pushes on to the back. It can easily be mistaken for packaging and thrown out sho be careful.

there was a cap when the product came in. the camera and the lens were dismantled and they had some sort of cap to protect the internal sides. Once you mount the lens, they will not be used.
On the other side of the lens there was a cap (not a twist cap). i think you will still use this cap once you have the lens mounted.
dont know if that answers your question.

Question

Can it take extremely closeup up pics of jewelry that I am selling?

I sell new jewelry on ebay and have to get very detailed on the way it is made. The faceting, the settings, etc. I need to get very close up. Will it do this without blurring the picture?

The D5200 takes excellent pictures. For your particular needs you might need a special macro lens for the detail you want. In the beginning this camera should work well. Lenses can be researched at http://www.nikonusa.com/en/index.page. Also you can watch videos about macro lens. I don't think you will be disappointed if you decide to purchase this camera. I hope this helps.

This kit includes an 18-55mm lens that has a minimum focus distance of .9 ft (.28m) and a maximum reproduction ratio of .31X so you may not be able to get as close as you'd like. However, since the D5200 has a 24MP sensor, you will have enough detail when shooting at the highest resolution that you could crop and enlarge your images and still retain image quality.

An alternative would be to add a Micro lens which is suited for close-up photography. For example, the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Macro Lens has a minimum focus distance of .53 ft (.163m) and has a maximum reproduction ratio of 1X.

You may also want to take a look at some of our Performance level COOLPIX compact cameras, which offer excellent Macro mode performance as well as other advanced features. The COOLPIX P7800, for example, can focus as close as .8in (2cm) in Macro Close-Up Mode.

Question

Nikon D3200 or Nikon D5200

My wife is new to photography and would like a DSLR. I am not sure if I should get the D3200 or pre-order the D5200.

Being a beginner is the D5200 going to be too much or is it better to start with the D5200 and allow her to grow into that camera.

i imagine this may be too late, but i am hoping you got the 3200. the reason is, people either get into photography or they do not. it is always best to start with the basic and grow into a better model if needed when using and SLR camera. In fact, i would have recommended to this person to get a 3100, which is still available in some places. I always caution people NOT to get hooked in by extra megapixels. 99 percent of people will not tell the difference between 24 MGP and 16 MGP.

I would go with the 5200 and let her grow into it. It is pretty easy to figure out. There are multiple beginner book on this particular camera that are really helpful. She will love the different features of this camera that the 3200 doesn't have.

The D5200 does not include a text overlay option that imprints text on an image. The Image Comment option in the Setup menu will add text to the image file's metadata that can then be viewed on the shooting data page in the photo information display. The Image Comment can also be viewed in the supplied View NX2 software. The D5200 can overlay the date, date and time, or a date counter on the image through the Print Date option in the Custom Settings Menu. The Print Date feature will not work if Image Quality RAW or RAW+JPEG.

That all depends on how old it is. Make sure that the lens says "AF-S" somewhere in the beginning of its name; if so, it'll work perfectly! I think that model was AF-S, but if not, then you will need the 7000 level as it has a built in motor.

Nikon operates factories all across the globe and each operates to the same high standard. While individual cameras are marked with their country of manufacture, we can't make a blanket statement about which camera is produced where.

Any computer with an SD card slot will be able to access the pictures you've taken, so I would say Yes, it should work fine. Transferring picture files via the USB cable should also work.

There is no reason it shouldn't be, it seems like a great fit. Be sure you really have the AF-S, as any regular AF will NOT work due to the 5200's lack of a focus motor.

Please check to insure setting are proper, if not focusing check the lens and make sure its feature is on also check in the setting menu in camera as well. There are multiple focus settings available for different modes.
