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 Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-P VR DX
The Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-P VR DX is a normal range kit lens for DX, cropped-sensor Nikon cameras. Key features include:
DX Standard Zoom. The full-frame equivalent range of 27-82.5mm makes this a suitable walk-around lens covering everything from a moderately wide angle to a short telephoto. The variable f/3.5-5.6 aperture helps keep the size and weight to a minimum.
High-Quality Optics. Twelve elements in nine groups, including two aspherical elements help keep images sharp, while minimizing distortions and vignetting. The seven-blade rounded aperture keeps the bokeh pretty nice and pleasant to look at.
Optical Image Stabilization. The 18-55’s VR image stabilization is rated for up to four stops of compensation.
Fast Focus. The AF-P Stepping Motor makes for fast, silent autofocus with an instant manual-focus override.
Compatibility. Sadly, if you don’t own one of the latest generation or two of the lower DX DSLRs, you still may be stuck with older lenses. The D7100 and D7200 can’t turn off VR, which is a shame.
It’s difficult at this point to say what’s going on with AF-P. Nikon seems to be making a pivot of some kind, but they’ve done almost nothing to help users of their previous Nikon DSLR bodies come along with wherever that pivot is leading them.
So here are our conclusions:
D3400, D5500, and D5600 users: This is the basic telephoto zoom to use, no questions asked.
D500, D3300, and D5300 users: If you have the current firmware, this is probably the basic telephoto lens to use .
D5200, D7100, and D7200 users: Note that you can’t set VR to off. If that’s okay with you, consider this lens .All other older DX users: Don’t buy this lens.
