like the 35mm f/1.8 G

+1 When I bought my D3200 I bought it body only with the 35mm f/1.8 for a £150 lens it's exceptional, small lightweight, fast, sharp and gives a great angle of view (equivalent to 52mm so basically 'normal').

The only problem with the lens is it's too fast in bright conditions so needs to either be stopped down or with an ND / PL filter due to the D3200 being limited to 1/4000 shutter speed.

so far I've only used my 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 and 24-70 f/2.8 as well with the camera, neither of these are really suited to your wants as 24 isn't wide enough.

I'd recommend a prime and then a UWA lens, for wildlife I doubt 105mm would be long enough so maybe the 75-300 or 70-200 f/2.8 if you can afford it.

I've just ordered the new Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 II for mine so can give you some feedback in about two weeks after my holiday with it.
