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 Sigma 10mm f/2.8 DC HSM Fisheye for Sony A-Mount
For crop sensor cameras, the Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM fisheye provides the classic fisheye look with a 167 degree angle of view with exaggerated perspective and fisheye distortion.The Sigma can focus as close as ten inches, providing some interesting close-up effects, especially given its huge depth of field. It allows full manual focus, but also autofocuses quickly and accurately.
This is a diagonal fisheye: it fills the entire rectangular frame of your photograph with a fisheye image that is almost 180° measured corner-to-corner. It’s about the equivalent of a classic 15mm fisheye on a full frame camera.
It’s very sharp and has the unusual ability to focus a few inches in front of the glass, meaning you can basically shoot a fisheye macro. I can’t for the life of me figure out why you would want to do that, but now you can.
We get asked a lot (and even worse, not asked by people who don’t know) what the different focal length fisheyes look like on different cameras. Here’s the short summary:
4.5mm – is a circular image in the center of your picture on a crop frame camera. A very, very small circle on a full frame.
8mm – is a circular image in the center of your picture on a full frame camera. Nearly, but not completely fills a crop frame.
10mm – is the classic, corner-to-corner fisheye look on a crop frame camera. Doesn’t fill a full frame image.
15mm – is the classic, corner-to-corner fisheye look on a full frame camera. Slightly fisheye look on a crop frame.
