Is it worth advertising kit lenses for sale? im looking to raise some money towards a better lens but im not sure if they are items people would be interested in. i have the 18-55 and 50-200mm ones which came with my k-r.

Certainly. On eBay you might well get a sale. I would start them off at a low price and then just wait and see. Pentax lenses do tend to sell and quite often sell well.

The lenses you are proposing to sell are actually good lenses, so as a spare or replacement could be useful.
Best regards, John

Maybe you could trade them in for your new lens. I got a good price for a 50-200 when I upgraded from a K-m to a K-r from a local dealer.
K5, DAL18-55,SMC 50mm f2,DA 55-300, SCM F 35-70 and all the help I can get.

I wouldn't bother with jessops, I went there for a trade in and what they offered me was an insult...I felt like punching them! Better to take John's advice and offer them on eBay. These two are good lenses, particularly the 50-200mm, I still use mine even though I now have the DA55-300

Yup, put them on Ebay. Dealers want to make a profit so will deduct a margin on what they will offer you
