Don't use teleconverter or tube in a field because it have a light-loss and with 200mm lens you need more than 100mm tube to get Macro range. (10:1~1:1) Try close-up filter 4T, 6T will fit but Nikon was discontinued it.

No. Having said that extension tubes do work to get you in that bit closer, I have a set of Kenco's I use on mine and they work well.

Yes it will work but it will not autofocus but that is not a problem with this lens as nearly all the time you will manual focus with it, af is slow anyway and not really of much use when getting in close, if you have the chance to buy one do so it is probably, if not the, best micro lens ever made, sharp corner to corner, i could go on, and yes I do own one.

Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D5000 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Yes it will be manual focus on the D5200 but with this lens that is not an issue as you will be using manual focus most of the time anyway, the AF is really not that fast and the accuracy is not that great at close focal distances.

It is compatible but manual focus only. Neither the lens or the camera have built in focus motor.
You need AF-S or the older AF-I designation, these lenses have built in focus motors.

AF means auto focus, but without a built in focus motor. F
f/4.0 is the maximum aperture, ED is special glass the lens is made of. IF means internal focus. D means the lens has an aperture ring.Here is an article in the Nikon learning library :http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-And-Explore/Article/gg1e57vo/how-to-read-your-nikkor-lens-barrel.html

AF Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D IF-ED will autofocus with the FX and DX body that has the auto focus motor built into the body. If the camera is not equipt with this motor, the lens will not autofocus. Nikon cannot speculate about future products or product updates until official information is announced on our web site: www.nikonusa.com

No idea, but none of the older AF lenses are on the list. The 200 micro is a fantastic lens and works great with the D800.
