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 Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH II
This ultra high-speed, wide-angle lens is characterized by exceptionally brilliant contrast, superb resolution and detail rendition, and virtually no coma. The complex optical design with an aspherical lens surface produces an image quality that is unsurpassed in compact 35mm lenses, even at full aperture.
This updated version of the 35mm features a floating element--the lenses behind the aperture blades are constructed as a floating group that changes its position relative to the front lens group during focusing to achieve high quality performance at closer focusing distances. Another new feature is a full-metal, rectangular, screw-mount lens hood that contributes significantly to the even more compact dimensions of the lens.This lens features Leica's 6-bit coding for sending metadata to digital M cameras, allowing for proper frame lines to be shown as well as proper digital correction of lens aberrations to be done in camera. The 35mm lens can even focus as close as 2.3 feet--close-up performance is improved through the inclusion of a floating element in the design. The aperture also uses nine blades for smooth out-of-focus areas in your imagery. Additionally, 46mm screw-on filters can be used, and a lens hood is included to limit flare.

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.
