    You usually get what you pay for.

    Not sure which lenses those are...and are those used prices?

    There are at least 2 versions of the Canon EF 28-105mm lens. The current model is the Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM and it goes for around $230 new.

    If that's the Canon EF 100-300 f/4.5-5.6 USM lens, that one usually goes for arount $295 new.

    You can check out some sample pics in these threads...

    Heres the first lens: Amazon.com: Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo

    and the second lens isn't actually canon its a Promaster lens 28-105MM

    just been looking at craigslist and found this deal.

    Never even heard of Promaster before. Checked out the web site and the stuff looks really cheap. I'd pass on that lens.
    If it's legit, get the Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM lens.
