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 Zeiss FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA Planar T* E-Mount Lens
The Sony FE 50mm f/1.4 ZA is a professional-grade, normal prime for full-frame E-mount cameras. Key features include:
Full-Frame E-mount. As part of the FE line of lenses, the FE 50mm f/1.4 is designed to cover a7-series cameras’ full-frame sensors. Since it’s an E-mount lens, it’s also fully compatible with APS-C NEX cameras.
Normal Angle. When used on a full-frame camera, the 50mm focal length offers a normal field of view that’s useful for just about any type of photography. With an APS-C sensor camera, you’ll have a portrait-range focal length of about 75mm. The fast f/1.4 aperture offers both great low-light performance and shallow depth-of-field control.
Direct-Drive Super Sonic Wave Autofocus System. This system uses piezoelectric elements oscillating at ultrasonic frequencies to provide fast, highly accurate, and nearly silent performance that’s great for still and video use.
Advanced Optics. The FE 50mm f/1.4 is based on the Zeiss Planar optical design. That means twelve elements in nine groups, including one aspherical element, one Advanced Aspherical element, and one extra-low-dispersion element, all of which work to combat aberrations and distortions. Eleven circular blades keep the bokeh beautiful across the aperture range, while the T* coating means you get that Zeiss color and micro-contrast.High-Quality Build. The FE 50mm offers dust- and moisture-resistant sealing for use in less-than-ideal conditions. The all-metal barrel gives the lens a solid feel and boasts a smooth, responsive manual-focus ring. The manual-aperture ring allows you to disengage click stops for smooth aperture adjustment when shooting video.

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.
