Yes, as long sa the lens can fit the bayonet. But it can't focus, because there are no AF motors in Nikon D3100 and AF 70-300mm f / 4-5.6 - G. And Nikon lens with AF is without AF motor. Lens marked with AF-S have focusing motor

D3100 DOESN'T RECONIZE NEW AF-S 50MM 1.8G LENS


There are a series of small brass "buttons" on the outside bottom of the lens where contact is established. If a new lens, there may be some dirt or grease on them preventing contack. Wipe lens and camera buttons carefully with a lent free cloth and retry. Then it is time to go back to the seller.

Will the Quantaray tech-10 24mm f2.8 lens work with Nikon D3100?


Quataray lenses are available with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it will work. If has some other mount then it will not.

Quantaray 600-1000mm Telephoto Zoom Lens FOR NIKON work with D3100 in all modes?


The lens is a manual focus lens. It doesn't matter which mode you have the camera in, you'll still have to focus it yourself.

Which is better to get - manual focus or AF extention tubes for Nikon D3100


AF tubes will let you focus manually, so you don't lose anything by getting AF tubes (except for additional money, perhaps). However, most close-up work requires manual focus anyway due it the very limited depth of field, so you won't gain much by getting AF tubes.

Personally, I've never missed the AF capability when using my manual tubes with my Nikons.

Autofocus Lens for Nikon 70-300 1:4-5.6 AF25-166-4553 is mountable on a D3100?


You didn't specify the make of the lens. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it will mount on a D3100. The big question is whether it will autofocus on the D3100. The D3100 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Not all lenses do. Nikon designates lenses with an autofocus motor as AF-S. Other manufacturers use different designations.
If you need further assistance, feel free to reply to this post and give the make of the lens.

I have a Nikon D3100 and want to buy a zoom lens 70-300.Please help I am confused is a Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G compatible? And is it automatic focus?


That lens will work with the D3100, except for the autofocusing. In order to autofocus with the D3100, you need AF-S lenses, such as the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED or the
AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR.

My D3100 will not autofocus or take pictures even if the lens is set to Auto Focus. If the lens is set to Manual, all works well. How do I get auto focus to work again


Go to your settings when your in shooting-mode (Press the 'i' button on the bottom left).
There, change your focus mode from MF to AF-S or AF-C or AF-A.
Should work.

The D3100 can't autofocus with this lens. The D3100 does not have a focus motor, depending on the lens to have one. The AF-Nikkor 50mm doesn't have a focus motor, depending on the camera to have one.

To autofocus, you need lenses designated AF-S.

I am thinking about getting a Nikon D3000 or D3100. Will my Sigma DL Macro Super 70-300 and Sigma 28-80 D work with these cameras.


If those lenses have a Nikon mount then they will fit on the D3000 and D3100. However, the D3000 and D3100 lack a focus motor. If the lens does not have the focus motor then you will not have the autofocus capability. Sigma calls their focus motor the HSM; if the lens does not specify HSM then they do not have the motor.

I have been given a 100-300mmF4.5-6.7DL Sigma lens but it will only work in manual focas AF but does work on a friends Nikon is that because my D40X has no AF motor.


That is exactly why the auto-focus (AF) does not work with that lens on this camera. The D40, D40X, D60, D3000, D3100 and D5000 lack an AF motor built into the camera. These cameras will require that the lens have the AF motor to work as expected.

You can review a complete list of lenses (as of 8/2010) that have a built in AF motor here.

Please rate this reply - thanks!
