"RE: Video with D3100?"
Hi Bill,The D3100 will not handle non-CPU lenses, any non AF-S lenses (AF D lenses for instance) must be manually focused. The D3100 does work well in manual mode.The kit lenses for the D3100 are cheap in $$ and very light - BUT are very high quality optically. That may be a solution for AF in video. I shot some HD video with a D3100 using an AF-S NIKKOR 18-200 VR G which looked great on our HD TV. Nikon's D3100 Digitutor may be helpful with what the D3100 can and can't do.http://www.nikonusa.com/en_US/IMG/Assets/Digital-SLR/2010/25472-Nikon-D3100/Video/digitutor/index.htmlI hope this helps,Well WishesKen
