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 Sony A 300mm f/2.8G SSM II
The Sony A 300mm f/2.8G SSM II is an update to the first-generation Sony 300mm f/2.8G SSM. Key features include:
What’s New? The Sony A 300mm f/2.8G SSM II’s autofocus motor features an LSI drive circuit that provides even faster autofocus speeds, with tracking focus speed four times faster than its predecessor’s. Sony also added a premium Nano AR Coating for eliminating internal ghosting and lens flare.
High-Quality Optics. Like its predecessor, the 300 f/2.8G II provides high-contrast images with very smooth background blur. Its optics have been tweaked to further reduce spherical aberration, while its three ED elements help to minimize chromatic aberration at wide apertures.
Advanced Focusing System. It has an internal focusing system that allows the lens to stay the same dimension at all focus distances, with two DMF focus modes for quick manual-focus tweaks. It still has the four focus-hold buttons seen on the original, as well as the focus limit switch with programmable near/far distances for customizing performance.Durable Construction. Its magnesium construction is substantial yet lightweight, and both the front and back of the lens and focus ring offer weather sealing for shooting in less-than-favorable conditions.
The original Sony 300 f/2.8 is one of favorite supertelephoto lenses, every bit as good as the Canon and Nikon counterparts. Why did Sony update it? I’m not sure, but to be honest this version isn’t all that different from the first one. Good thing we like it so much.
Oh, and just like the previous version, don’t lose the lens hood. It costs $1,100 to replace! No, I’m not kidding.
Are we out of stock?If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.
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.
