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 Leica 25mm f/1.4 (for Micro 4/3)
The Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH Micro 4/3 lens is a normal range lens designed for Micro 4/3 cameras. After the 2x crop factor, you have a very fast 50mm f/1.4 lens that works great in low light conditions and lets users achieve a shallow depth-of-field for their images. At f/1.4, the bokeh has a very smooth appearance that is ideal for portraits, enabling true subject/background separation. When you do stop down, you still have a smooth transition thanks to the seven-blade circular aperture.This is a Panasonic Leica lens, so you can expect very high quality images with minimal distortion and very low aberrations. It has Nano Surface Coating, which corrects for ghosting and flare, as well as one Ultra High Refractive and two Aspherical lenses for optimum contrast and corner-to-corner sharpness.
The lens that has, I believe, spawned more internet fanboy arguments than any other for micro 4/3, the Panasonic Leica is really quite good. Is it the very best? It might be at this focal length. It might not be. But it’s very good. It’s a bit better stopped down to f/2.0 or so, if you can, but it’s quite sharp even wide open.
