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 200-400mm f/4G AF-S VR II
The Nikon 200-400mm f/4G AF-S ED VR II is a remarkably fast and sharp zoom lens, and an update to the original Nikon 200-400. Key features include:
Incredibly Sharp and Fast Zoom. The Nikon 200-400mm f/4G AF-S ED VR II s an incredible 200-400mm zoom lens with no equal on any other camera body. It boasts vibration reduction, and Silent Wave Motor technology for fast autofocusing. It’s sharp and fast enough to freeze action in decent light.Advanced Vibration Reduction. The vibration reduction system allows it to be handheld, but you’ll need a strong shoulder to do it all day. We recommend a monopod for a day’s shooting. In addition to normal VR, the system has an “active mode” for times when lens movement is more extreme.
This is not your grandfather’s 80-400 VR! Please, get out your tripod or monopod--unless you’re using Barry Bonds’ trainer, this is a hefty beast, although it's certainly hand-holdable for a few shots.
But wow, is it worth the weight and the price. Lightning-fast focusing, as sharp as most prime lenses, and VR that really works make this a truly amazing lens. In decent light this lens takes a 1.4x teleconverter very well, providing a nice 280-560 f/5.6 VR zoom. Very sweet.

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.
