Lenses for D5100 or D3200?

Well Saturday I went to Jessops and asked for a demo of the 5100 I wanted them to demonstrate the auto bracketing function and despite 2 salesmen coming over neither of them knew how to do it the knowledge of the staff was poor to say the least....

I then asked them if my lenses would work with the 3200 and again they did not know the answer. It's such a thin line between each camera and I am swinging to the 3200 but could you advise on if my current range of lenses will all work with the camera as if they don't it will be the 5100 I'm of to Greece on Saturday so want to get the camera in the next couple of day.
