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 Lensbaby Velvet 85mm f/1.8 for Nikon
The Lensbaby Velvet 85mm f/1.8 for Nikon is a short telephoto lens that’s great for portraiture. Key features include:
Classic-Style Portrait Lens. The Lensbaby Velvet 85mm’s lens design produces a soft, glowing effect at wide apertures with a smooth tonality similar to that of a classic 20th-century portrait lens. Its twelve-blade diaphragm produces pleasing bokeh, while the bright f/1.8 aperture gives you substantial control over depth of field and lets you shoot in low light. This lens was designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, but you can use it on DX-format cameras for a 127.5mm focal length.
Multi-Purpose Lens. In addition to its portrait qualities, the Velvet 85mm also features a 9.5-inch minimum focusing distance and a 1:2 maximum magnification for close-up shooting. At smaller apertures, this lens is capable of producing sharper images.Fully Manual. This lens provides no electronic communication with the camera. It boasts a smooth manual-focusing movement augmented by engraved focus-distance indicators.
