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 300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM for Canon
The Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM is a high-quality telephoto prime lens for Canon EF-mount cameras. It features a fast f/2.8 aperture that allows not only great performance in light-challenged shooting conditions, but also provides sharp images with smooth, creamy background blur.
Optically, the lens features two ELD elements to minimize chromatic aberrations while providing accurate color rendition. Its multi-layer lens coating helps to reduce ghosting and lens flare, while the detachable lens hood provides further prevention.Please Note: Canon teleconverters, both the 1.4x and 2x, WILL work on this lens.
I’m generally not a fan of Sigma’s longer lenses and we didn’t carry this one at first. But when Canon raised the price of their supertelephoto lenses, we took a harder look at this lens. I’m glad we did — I actually love this lens. It doesn’t have Optical Stabilization, but for sportshooters that’s not critically important.
What it does have is excellent center sharpness (very comparable to the original Canon 300 f/2.8 IS. The autofocus works well and quickly, much better than the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8. What I love about it, though, is it’s size. It’s much smaller than the other 300 f/2.8 lenses which makes it easy to carry and handhold.
I’m actually very impressed with this lens. With it’s smaller size and less obvious black finish, I found myself getting fewer stares and feeling less like a target when I took it out shooting. I can handhold it for hours without strain. I have to say I’m really surprised by how impressed I am with this lens.
