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 SLR Magic 50mm f/.95 HyperPrime for Micro 4/3
The SLR Magic 50mm f/0.95 Hyperprime is a super fast manual focus lens for Micro 4/3 mirrorless cameras. The f/0.95 aperture, which allows for an extremely shallow depth-of-field, in combination with the 100mm-equivalent focal length makes for a great portrait lens. With such a wide aperture, shooting in very low light is also possible. It features a stepless aperture ring with a locking screw to lock your chosen aperture in place. The manual focus ring is very smooth with a nice throw, which will work wonderfully for video work as well as still photography.
This is a pretty fun lens to play around with. The f/0.95 aperture gives very nice background separation with a creamy bokeh, but don’t expect corner sharpness with this guy. It takes stopping down to f/11 to give even remotely sharp corners, which is a silly thing to do with a f/0.95 lens. You get decent center sharpness at f/0.95, but stopping down to f/1.4 will sharpen it up quite nicely if that’s your aim. One suggestion when shooting with this lens is to use the locking screw on the aperture ring. I noticed several times while manually focusing that I had accidentally turned the aperture ring as well. This can easily be fixed by using the locking screw. If there is one downside to this lens, it is the somewhat low-contrast images. While you can adjust contrast levels in post to a reasonable degree, it would be nice if it was already there.

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.
