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 300mm f/4L IS USM
This lens is a comparatively small, very sharp telephoto lens with an excellent Image Stabilization system. The 300mm f/4 is easily handheld in decent light. One interesting feature is its ability to focus as close as 5’ away, much closer than most telephoto lenses, which allows it to be used almost as a Macro lens. With a 1.4x teleconverter it becomes a very nice 420mm f/5.6 lens with image stabilization, making it a very nice alternative to the Canon 400mm f/5.6 lens.
No one talks about this lens much, but it’s one of my favorites. It’s sharper, faster, and lighter weight than the Canon 100-400mm, and the close focusing ability is nice to have. It’s an excellent travel or hiking telephoto lens and my favorite “zoo” lens in combination with the 1.4x teleconverter. If I know I’ll be shooting 300-400 range, I prefer that combination to the 100-400mm. Like the Canon 200mm f/2.8, this lens is one of those great Canon lenses that many people never try, but those who do try it out rent it again and again…or buy their own.
Are we out of stock?If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.
We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.
On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.
In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.
If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
