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 TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II
The Canon 24mm Tilt-Shift lens was developed with several marked improvements over the previous version. The most dramatic change is the tilt and shift axes can be independently rotated between themselves and the camera body rather than remaining at 90 degrees like the previous version (and all other tilt-shift lenses) required. There are also multiple aspherical and UD glass elements, curved aperture blades, "sub-wavelength" coatings, and virtually everything in the lens-design book.
This lens is amazingly sharp, amazingly wide, has absolutely no chromatic aberration, and is exceedingly well built. The new Canon TS-Es are as good as anything available in the genre. You can tilt, shift, and change the planes of each relative to the other. If you have tilt-shift experience, this lets you do remarkable things. If you’re tilt-shift challanged (this would be me) you can still do remarkable things--once. Then you can spend the next two hours figuring out how you did that.
To be honest, both the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 and Canon TS-E 17mm f/4 are so sharp, I sometimes take them in place of another prime to shoot as regular lenses--they’re just that good. Then you can do the tilt-shifty thingamabob and get some really amazing depth of field, slam home a quick panorama, straighten up tall buildings, or just get a very cool effect.
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.
