I just received my 180mm f/2.8 and tried it on my D600. It works beautifully. It took me a moment to figure out that there is a small switch next to the aperture ring on the lens that need to be back, but once I found that all was good. The focus motor in the camera is a bit noisier than the silent wave motors in more modern lenses, but it works nicely. Seems to be about as quick as my other lenses. I'm looking forward to shooting a motorcycle race with mine.

Question

How close can I come in contact to an object?

I hear raves about it's sharpness and work in low light along with fast focusing, I need it because I do photography for bands. I like getting in the front row and getting close to them, am I still able to do this?

Manual focus, you need lenses with a AF-S or AF-I designation. They have built in focus motors since your d5200 does not have a focus motor.

Manual focus only, the lens does not have a built in focus motor and neither does the D3100 you need lenses with a AF-S or the older AF-I designation. They have built in focus motors.
