I'm getting mix signal with previous post when the commented using it on the Nikon D3100 on the Manual Mode. Can anyone please clarify or provide any suggestions on these Lens. Thx in advance.

As far as I know it works the same as the D3000 (which my fiancee has). You can shoot only in manual mode, and the light meter won't work. So you either need a handheld light meter and an exposure table, or a bit of guesswork and trial-and-error.

Joe is correct on all points, I have a 3100. I prefer my OM Pen E PL-1 with a tilt transformer composer; it works in aperture priority any way you set it up, no matter the LB optic.

God said, "Let there be light," and it was so....

I have a D3100 and am also new to Lensbaby. Just got a Composer Pro with the Sweet 35 optic and Macro Converters. I think Soft Focus optic will be my next purchase. You do have to shoot in Manual on the 3100. Make certain you change your settings so that Flash is on Manual (I.e. can't use TTL). They also suggest you play around with what intensity of flash you want to use for normal type shots you plan on doing. Actually, I've found I like having flash on manual. Have fun!
