More lens clean out - 50mm f/1.8 and stock EF 75-300mm

Just want to see what people think about these - are people buying them?

The 50mm f/1.8 (not sure if it's Mark I or Mark II) is the 'nifty fifty' that people talk about. Cheap, great value, reasonable sharpness when stopped down a bit and very fast for the price. It's a popular lens.

The 75-300 is the stock EF lens that came with the camera. It's been very handy for me with the big zoom range and I've taken some great shots with it, but of course it's not very fast and not L glass. At 300mm on the crop camera it's got good range.

Is there any interest in these? Not sure how much they're worth. I could do some searching on ebay for relevant prices if there's interest.

I may be interested in the 50 mm as well. From memory, I think the Mark I has a metal mount where it attaches to the camera, but the Mark II has a plastic mount (could be wrong though).
