Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our specific product listings (if available), usually marked with a serial number. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.
The Canon 14mm f/2.8L II
Canon’s ultra wide angle rectilinear lens. The lens has completely redesigned optics and is extremely sharp without much chromatic aberration. With a 114° field of view and low distortion, this lens is ideal for architectural photography.
If you want to shoot a Canon full-frame really wide, this is the best lens you can pick up. It’s much sharper than the 16-35 f/2.8. For a 14mm lens it has a very reasonable 2% barrel distortion (half of what the Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 zoom has, for example). It’s an excellent lens. Pricey, but then there’s really nothing else this wide and this sharp for Canon shooters.
If I was shooting architecture, though, I’d really consider the Canon 17mm f/4 TS-E which has virtually no distortion and the added benefits of tilt and shift.
