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 17-50mm f/2.8 DC HSM OS for Sony A-Mount
The Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM is a normal-range zoom lens designed specifically for DSLRs with an APS-C sensor. A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture makes it great for low-light event shooting, as well as on-the-go portraits. The lens features Sigma’s built-in four-stop OS to further aid low-light shooting. Sigma has minimized optical defects such as aberrations and ghosting/flaring by utilizing aspherical and low dispersion elements with Super Multi-Layer coating. This makes for a highly versatile lens that’s been designed from the ground up for crop-frame shooters.
Another upgraded Sigma lens that is really quite excellent. The major comparison would be to the Sony 16-50 f/2.8. Both are very good lenses and you’ll probably be quite happy with either one. The Sigma is a bit more expensive and may have better corners, particularly at the wide end of the zoom range. That’s about all the difference I can see.
