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 150mm f/2.8 DG HSM APO Macro OS for Canon
The predecessor to this lens was probably our favorite Macro: superbly sharp, great working distance, and just a super Macro lens that was also an excellent mid-range telephoto lens. The 150mm range allows more working distance when shooting Macro. The OS system adds about three stops of image stabilization, allowing it to be used without a tripod for a lot of macro work. As with all updated OS lenses, the optical formula has been changed a bit, and the lens is a bit larger and heavier.
150mm is probably my favorite macro focal length: you get a nice working distance so you can be further from the object than with a 100mm lens, yet the 150mm is not too large to handhold. The OS system in the Sigma 150mm OS encourages hand-held shots, too, although you’ll still want a tripod and focusing rail for really critical macro work, and the lens comes with a tripod collar for just that purpose.
The Sigma 150mm macro is just as sharp as any 100mm macro made. The OS system isn’t quite as good as the Canon 100mm f/2.8 IS L lens, but it’s still quite good.
Are we out of stock?If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.
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.
