A worrier we have...

Thanks for the reply, you are right that I am a worrier, Yoda  Your suggestion deals with the problem of upgrading but what if I buy an oldish lens? The older, non-OS Sigma 50-150 looks like a very good deal on ebay but will it work on my D3100, never mind my future D7100?

It must also hurt the resale value of 3rd party lenses, I've just bought the beautiful Sigma 8-16 and I can't imagine ever wanting to be without it (even for a moment) but if I did try to sell it in the future then my potential customers will be prepared to pay less if they are taking a gamble.

Does anyone know of a list of which lenses will work on which bodies?
