Well I wasnt sure where to post this so I figured here would be best.

I have some lenses that I started out with and am now in the proccess of upgrading and plan on selling them but I am unsure of what would be a fair price to ask so any help would be great.

This is what I have:

The lens that came with my 350, 18-55mm with 6-8 photos taken with it (just about new)

I also purchased a 2 lens Sigma set for just under $300 with a 28-80mm and a 75-300mm

Thanks for any tips

you'd do better to put this in the lens section or in marketplace.. I do think that lenses tend to hold there value...

The 18-55mm goes for about $60, but it's very wide & not bad at f/8 & above, so I'd keep it if I were you.
