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 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports for Canon
The Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports for Canon is a high-grade super-telephoto lens designed for full-frame Canon DSLRs. Key features include:
Super Telephoto. The Sigma 500mm f/4 DG OS HSM Sports for Canon is perfect for sports and wildlife shooters. The variable f/4 aperture is pretty fast considering the focal length of the lens.
Hyper Sonic Motor Autofocus System. This autofocus system provides fast, silent operation in a wide variety of shooting situations. The AF/MF switch offers a Manual-Override position, which enables full-time manual-focus override for quick fine-tuning.
Optical Stabilizer. Helps to eliminate camera shake when shooting by up to four stops, meaning you get crisper photos. For improved panning performance, Sigma uses an Intelligent optical stabilizer to help detect horizontal and vertical movement when shooting in Mode 2.
High Image Quality. As part of Sigma’s Sports line, this lens goes through Sigma’s rigorous A1 testing to ensure high image quality. Two “F” Low-Dispersion (FLD) elements, which perform equivalently to fluorite, eliminate residual chromatic aberration. Meanwhile, one Special Low-Dispersion (SLD) element keeps color aberrations at bay.
Professional Build. The lens barrel is constructed of magnesium alloy, making the lens durable and lightweight. Dust- and splash-proof sealing further ensure uninhibited shooting in messy situations, with water- and oil-repellent coatings on the front and rear element to keep the lens clean. The 500mm makes use of a drop-in filter system.
Dock Compatible. As part of Sigma’s Global Vision series, this lens is compatible with the Sigma USB Dock for Canon EF Lenses (sold separately), allowing you to adjust certain parameters through the Sigma Optimization Pro software.Sigma TC-Compatible. This lens is officially supported by Sigma’s own TC-1401 1.4x and TC-2001 2x Teleconverter for Canon.

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.
