I don't think I'd get very much for them. Keeping them has to be better then nothing right?

It's almost triple the price, but from what I've seen when I did some research it seems like it is a better lens (i.e. the bokeh appears more round because of more elements in the lens). I'm just not sure if it's worth 3 times the price. I supposed getting the right one now is cheaper than having to buy another one later though.

I'd say most of the shooting I'm doing will be of buildings/landscape/cars. The 85mm is around $430 which is a tad more than I wanted to spend.

I'd say around $350. I'm buying a ring soon so I don't want to go too overboard with my new hobby!
