No, it doesn't have an AF assist light, but it hardly ever needs one - f1.8 is the widest aperture on any digicam (and also on the 3040 and 4040 of course) apart from the really expensive interchangeable lens SLRs. The maximum aperture is gradually reduced to f2.6 at the full tele end of the zoom, but even that's better than most, and since the focusing is always done wide open (whatever aperture will actually be used to expose the shot), the camera "sees" very well to focus in low light.

No, it doesn't. I had a 2000 and enjoyed it. This one has a faster lens.

Olympus SP800uz. The camera makes sound when I focus on any object, like some motor is moving inside even if I am not using zoom. The sound increases gradually when used for some time.

You are possibly using an Fulltime AF mode for focussing.See user manual page 34 or the AF mode is set to AF Tracking. If these modi are set, the camera continuously tries to focus on the subject, hence the sound.

D90 AF assist light doesn't come one in M mode???

Check to see whether you're set for AF-C in M, A, and P modes. The AF assist doesn't light in AF-C. Auto mode automatically selects AF-S, so the AF assist would come on then.

Low light no focus

The Nikon D100 custom settings option 22 - AF Assist, controls the AF Assist light.
Check if this has been turned off.

This option controls whether the auto-focus assist light comes on in low light to help autofocus

Flash

This is the AF Assist feature. If you don't have a hot-shoe flash mounted, but you do have the pop-up flash raised, the camera will strobe the pop-up flash in low-light situations to provide illumination for the auto-focus to work. You can disable it by turning off the AF ILLUMINATOR option in the "Wrench 1" settings menu.

AF assist lamp on 3100z?

The 3000Z does not have AF assist, and I assume the 3100Z does not have one either.

AF Illuminator

The AF illuminator allows the auto focus system to focus on dark subjects. When the shutter button is pressed half way, the AF illuminator will light up the subject. The default setting is “ON”.

AF mode

Full-time AF keeps the image on the LCD monitor focused at all times without having to press the shutter release button. Note the following: Using full-time AF will drain the battery more quickly Full-time AF is not available when the LCD monitor is turned off For "Card set-up" or "Card cover alarm", the AF operation of the camera does not halt. Once resumed, the camera always puts the AF in action for immediate focusing
