This section of the forum is for discussing lenses--to sell, you want to go here and read the top links for background information. There is surely a market for these lenses here.

For the hassle I don't think buying the 2 lens kit just to sell both is really worth it. You are probably better off just getting the single lens kit, and selling the 18-55 L, which should fetch about fifty bucks.

I have seen some of the 55-300L lenses sell over $250, but I don't think they are worth more than $225 or so (that is what I would pay anyway - no hood, plastic mount and no quickshift compared to the non-L version, which goes just shy of $300). Bottom line, there is a search button in the marketplace, so take a look and see for yourself if it is worth the time to buy both.
