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 85mm f/3.5G AF-S VR DX Micro
This is a DX-formatted medium telephoto Micro lens. It is ideal for extreme close-up and general photography including portraits. The lens will autofocus from 10.8", producing a life-size (1:1) image. It has Nikon’s VR II vibration reduction system and an SWM motor for rapid autofocus. Additionally it has complete internal focusing making it ideal for use with filters and a 9 rounded blade aperture ring for smooth bokeh.
Mom used to say if you can’t say anything nice . . . . Well, actually its not a bad lens. I just am wondering who wants an 85mm Macro that doesn’t get very sharp until f5.6 or so. Its a nice little lens, it does what they say it does well. But it really isn’t particularly useful otherwise: its not wide enough aperture to make a useful portrait or sports prime. If I wanted a dedicated Macro I’d really prefer the 105 VR f2.8. But I guess there are some times that a small, lightweight DX Macro in this focal length is useful. I think there are. Probably.
