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 Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Canon 28mm f/2.8 IS USM
The Canon 28mm f/2.8 IS USM is a small, lightweight wide-angle option for Canon DSLRs. It features a built-in Image Stabilizer that offers up to four stops of correction, making its f/2.8 aperture plenty fast for many shooting situations. Its ring-type USM focusing motor allows for fast, near-silent autofocus performance. It features a rear-focusing design that allows it to remain just 2.02" in length. The image quality produced is quite high, with an aspherical element used to provide high levels of corner sharpness and coated optics to minimize ghosting and flare. This is a wonderful low-cost lens option for both still and video shooters.
It’s small. It’s very sharp, even in the corners. AF is quick and accurate. It has four stops of IS. A 28mm f/2.8 prime lens isn’t something most people need everyday. But if you are one of those that do, or if you just need it for tonight’s concert shoot, or whatever, you’ll be very happy with it. I think the 28mm is a bit sharper than the 24, for those of you who are trying to decide between them.
