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 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM for Sony A-Mount
This Sigma lens is a wide-aperture, standard zoom lens, with HSM motor for rapid autofocus and an optical system designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras. The super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting, and its use of ELD and SLD glass provides excellent correction of all types of aberrations. It also has a nine-bladed diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus highlights.
We haven’t been huge Sigma fans, but this lens is turning us around a bit. First, we’ve been pleasantly suprised that the copies we received were all accurate focusers -- and focused quite quickly at that. The lens seems well-built, and the rings feel solid. At f/4 and higher, the lens is very sharp and can hang with the Sony-Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 24-70mm f/2.8 ZA (we didn’t do any pixel-peeping, hair-splitting tests, but it looks good). At f/2.8 it’s clearly softer than the Sony. I mean, I’d call it usable, but this lens is clearly sharper at f/4.
