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 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM for Canon
The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM is perfectly suited for portrait photography and low-light event photography. It features Sigma’s aspherical and low dispersion elements, used to provide optimum image quality. With the built-in silent HSM focusing motor, it is a great choice for video shooters as well. Its circular nine-blade aperture ring allows for a smooth background blur, while the multi-layer lens coatings keep pesky flares at bay.
I’ve only done “around the shop” testing and shooting with this one, but that’s enough to say it’s quite a sharp lens and autofocuses quickly--quicker than the Canon 85 f/1.2 by a good bit and about as fast as the 85 f/1.8. It has a tendency to front focus on a number of bodies (not badly, and it’s consistent). It doesn’t seem to change much with focus distance or aperture, unlike some other lenses that can drive you crazy. But because we’ve noted it, we recommend that this lens be used on cameras that have microfocus adjustment so you can correct for it (and that you actually use the microfocus adjustment feature before rolling out with this lens). Given that, it looks like a winner!
