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 TC-20E III 2x Teleconverter
This is the third version of Nikon’s 2x autofocus teleconverter, increasing focal length by 2x and reducing aperture by two f-stops. It maintains autofocus with all Nikon digital cameras. The version III contains an aspheric element that is claimed to provide superior image quality.
The 1.4X is the teleconverter I recommend with few reservations. You can use it with any of the lenses above and have just a little deterioration in image quality (and of course give up 1 stop of light). The 2X converter I really recommend only on the f/2.8 telephoto primes and the 200mm f/2.0 lens. You can certainly use it on some of the others (although autofocus may be impaired or not work at all depending on the camera you’re shooting). The 1.7X is the compromise. You lose 1.5 stops of aperture and give up some image quality, although not a huge amount.
Remember, too, that a teleconverter gives you a double whammy: your exposure time and the focal length of the lens are both increased. This makes technical issues more likely so a sturdy tripod, mirror lock up, etc. are often critical to getting sharp images.
