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 50mm f/1.4 A-Mount Lens
This is the classic 50mm fast prime in Sony mount. The wide aperture combined with in-camera image stabilization makes this a superb choice for shooting indoors or in dim light. Creative control of depth of field is possible, and the superb out-of-focus bokeh makes images that just can’t be achieved with a zoom.
This little lens is small, lightweight, and sharp stopped down. Just a good all-around walk-around or portrait lens. But the claimed aperture is kind of like my wife’s shoe size: she says she’s a size 6, but a 6.5 feels so much better that she usually buys a 7. This lens can shoot at f/1.4, as long as you don’t mind blurry images. But it’s so much better at f/2 that I shoot it at f/2.8 where it’s pretty sharp.
