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 40mm f/2.8 AF-S DX Micro
The 40mm f/2.8 DX Micro is a very nice “all-around” prime lens. Although it doesn’t have the very wide aperture of some primes, f/2.8 is still more than adequate for most conditions. The focal length on a DX camera is good for street shooting, full-length portraits, and outdoor architectural shots, and it gives you a Macro lens in your bag suitable for close-up work (and it’s a true 1:1 macro, not just sort-of-macro). Plus, it’s small and lightweight, so it doesn’t take up a ton of room in your bag, and it’s inexpensive, so it doesn’t take up a lot of room in your budget.
Personally, I find short macro lenses difficult to work with because you have to get so close to the subject. But at this price, with the superb image quality this lens has, it’s really a compelling lens for anyone shooting a DX camera. Heck, it’s even weather sealed. Even if you don’t really want to shoot macros, this is a great little lens.
