Canon 50mm f/2.5 Lens Broken AF Switch + What Lenses to Pair w. My T1i?

Got this 50mm f/2.5 awhile back ago, but never really used it; planning to sell it now. The autofocus button was broken when I bought it from the original owner, but I always used the manual focus.

Does this look like it can be fixed? How much would they roughly sell for right now?

On a side note (to avoid posting two threads): I'm looking for a new lenses for my T1i. I've had my T1i for about 2-3 years now; sticking w. the 18-55 and 55-250. They shoot decently, but I now want to upgrade. I think that getting new lenses, then upgrading the body later if necessary would be better.

The two lenses I have in mind are:

- 50mm f/1.8 II

- 28-135IS

Any other suggestions? I think $200-250 new/used is my budget for now. I'm not really sure what I need my lenses to do, but would like high quality photos of portraits/scenery/performances.

Thanks!
