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 Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 SP Di VC USD G2 for Canon
The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 for Canon is an updated fast-aperture standard zoom lens designed for Canon EF-mount cameras. Key features include:
What’s New? The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 marks a slight update over its predecessor, the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC. Most notably, you get an upgraded five-stop vibration compensation system with two modes; a faster and more precise autofocus system; and protective eBAND, BBAR, and fluorine coatings.
Normal-Range Zoom. With full-frame sensor coverage, this lens’s 24-70mm focal length is the go-to for portrait, wedding, and event photography. It covers the wide to short tele focal lengths to give you the most flexibility while still maximizing image quality and speed. You can also use this lens on APS-C cameras, on which it’ll provide a 38.6-112mm equivalent focal-length range.
Improved Vibration Compensation. The upgraded in-lens stabilizer helps to eliminate camera shake when shooting handheld. It’s rated for up to five stops of correction and features two modes. Mode 1 is promotes a stabilized viewfinder image and stabilized results, making it a great balanced setting for general use. Mode 2 is specifically designed for panning motions.
Fast Aperture. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture is consistently bright throughout the zoom range and useful in a range of lighting conditions, including low light. The nine rounded aperture blades contribute to smooth bokeh.
Updated USD Autofocus System. The Ultrasonic Silent Drive motor allows for fast, silent operation. Pairing a speedy AF system together with a continuous manual mechanism allows you to hit your focus with confidence.
High-Quality Optics. The Tamron SP 24-70 f/2.8 Di VC USD G2’s twelve-group/seventeen-element optical design features three low-dispersion elements, three aspherical elements, one hybrid aspherical element, and two extra refractive index elements to promote sharpness and color rendering while limiting chromatic aberrations. Tamron has applied eBAND and BBAR coatings to the elements to combat ghosting and lens flare, even when you’re working in backlit conditions.Durable Build. This lens’s durable, moisture-resistant construction means you can use it in adverse conditions without worry. The front lens has a fluorine coating to protect it from debris and smearing.
Optically it’s identical to the original version of this lens, still 17 elements in 12 groups (the image used for the lens diagram on Tamron’s own site is the exact same image for both lenses). Don’t expect this lens to be any sharper than the previous version, despite claims to the contrary. We haven’t seen any optical improvement. But there are lots of other things to like about this upgrade. The lens features new coatings that offer additional flare and ghosting resistance, a more rugged “moisture-resistant” construction (please do not take this to mean it’s weather sealed—even Tamron doesn’t use this terminology), a locking hood, and improved AF and VC performance. It can also be used on Tamron’s TAP-in USB dock for firmware updating and fine adjustments to AF and VC.
