The 3200 does not have an auto focus motor so I believe you cannot adjust focus on the Tokina 10-17 while diving.

Sorry, but the tokina will not focus with your D3200.

Even though it is an AF lens, neither the camera or lens has an AF motor, so it will not focus.

You can go wide with something like the 12-24mm but this is not a replacement for a fisheye. I suspect this is a major reason the D3200 is not a popular U/W camera. Have you ordered it yet or can you change it for D7000?
