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 Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 OIS (for Micro 4/3)
The Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 X OIS is a fast-aperture, standard-range zoom lens for Micro 4/3 mount cameras and camcorders. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-70mm, this lens fills the void of the standard go-to lens that long plagued the Micro 4/3 format. It features Panasonic’s Power O.I.S. in-lens image stabilizer, which offers twice the amount of correction as Panasonic’s previous stabilizer, and a nearly-silent autofocusing motor works great with both photo and video shooting.The optics feature Nano Surface Coating to reduce ghosting and flare, Ultra Extra-Low Dispersion glass to minimize chromatic aberration, and Ultra High Refractive glass to give strong corner to corner performance. The Panasonic 12-35mm also features a dust and splash-proof design, as well as a strong metal lens mount.
It’s finally here: the equivalent of a 24-70mm professional quality zoom on full-frame is now available for Micro 4/3 cameras. It’s as good as I’d hoped it would be, meaning it gives you just what this type of lens does on a full-frame camera. It’s very sharp even wide open. Not as sharp as the best primes, but close. And it doesn’t have a weak spot -- it retains sharpness at both the long and short ends of the zoom. It gets a bit sharper at f/4, but not much, so most of us will leave it on f/2.8 all of the time.
I shoot it mostly on an Olympus body, so I haven’t tried the OIS on this lens, but others tell me it’s very, very efficient. Probably the only warning I have is do NOT put the sun in your image. This lens will flare, most definitely it will flare. But otherwise it’s just about perfect.

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.
