The AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm 2.8 lens would work great on the D3100.
I use this lens on my FX D700 and my DX D70s sensor cameras.
Although this lens was designed to work optimally with a FX sensor it still works fabulous with Nikon's DX sensor cameras such as your D3100.
-- If you are getting into the rewarding aspect of Micro photography this is a great lens to start with. Happy Shooting

To fully optimize your shooting experience, consider a R1C1 Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System.

Early models of the lens were made in Japan, current ones in China. But as others have basically said, don't concern with origin of the build, it really doesn't matter. Build quality is the same and would expect quality control to be the same across regions. Most 'USA' warrantied lenses have 'US' preceding the serial number, but not all do. If the box has the 5-yr tag on it and the warranty paperwork has the 1-yr plus 4yr US warranty info and all serial numbers match up and even if the lens doesn't have the serial number preceded with US imprinted on the lens, it is a US lens, not grey-market import and will be serviceable by Nikon. Nikon prefers you also buy through an authorized retailer. As well, typically there is a serial number set that corresponds to the US or international market. But then again, that's not always dependable if you get a US lens without US imprinted. For these lenses that are US but lack the US imprint in the serial number, I suspect based on demand and available stock, Nikon moves inventory first intended for non-US markets to the US market by adding all the necessary warranty info to cover the USA program and that's why some lens end up fully warrantied by NikonUSA without US imprinted. So basically, if you receive all the necessary paperwork, you're good. Would be interested to see Nikon responds to this post with agreement or correction.

My lens 105mm f2.8 Micro Nikkor was made in China & sold in the US. I would have never suspected until I looked. The build is superb,the Glass is flawless the pictures are tack sharp with beautiful bokah. I was dissapointed to learn that the f stop changes & is only f2.8 @ infinity.At 1-1 Macro it is f4. Shooting @ 1:1 i always stop down to f8-f22 anyway so it is a moot point but feel Nikon should advertise it as a variable apurture lens. That said, I would buy it again. Buster

Nikon operates factories all across the globe and each operate to the same high standard. While individual cameras are marked with their country of manufacture we can't make a blanket statement about which camera is produced where.

Absolutely! It is great for telephoto use in situations not requiring a large depth of field. It produces very sharp portraits. It is excellent for street photography to enable the isolation of the subject from the surrounding environment without having to be too close. This provides the opportunity to get great candid shots even in low lighting situations without the use of a flash. I love it!

To shoot 1:1 the sensor plane is about 1 Ft. from the subject. I have shot many Wasps,Hornets & Bees & have never been stung. I have found,If you don't swat them they won't swat you. Remain CALM & if they start to get agressive, back away slowly & let them calm down.They will accept you if you don't hurt or injur them. Have fun!

Yes, but not as efficiently as it does at smaller magnifications. On December 16, 2008 photographic journalist Julia Silber did a review specifically about this lens' VF performance while at macro use (easily found at a simple Internet search).

When I need to do tripod less macro, instead of VR I recur to FP high speed flash, at 1/4000: it freezes *anything*, including bees' wings. The attached photo was taken with a D7000 @1/4000, SB-600 flash on FP mode, 18-55VR lens with a mile of extension tubes @ f/22.

The HN-30 is designed for the 200 f/4 so even if it did fit there is a very good chance it would cause vignetting as it is a lot longer than the hoods for the 105mm.

The size of the lens isn't the point. Having a tripod collar for easy rotation into a vertical composition without "L" brackets or flopping the ballhead over to the notch is the point. A matter of preference for shooting.

No, it doesn't need one, it is small enough to be on camera and mounted on a tripod with the camera mount

Max aperture is based on infinitiy focus. Magnification causes you to lose light so the camera compensates by showing the “effective aperture”. If the lens is set to infinity the aperture will display f/2.8. This is the case for all lenses, but its really only noticable on Macros because of the magnification.
