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 Venus Optics Laowa 105mm f/2 Smooth Trans Focus for Sony E
The Venus Optics Laowa 105mm f/2 Smooth Trans Focus is a short telephoto lens for Sony E-mount cameras and camcorders. Key features include:
Fast Aperture, Short Telephoto. The 105mm focal length (157.5mm equivalent on crop sensor) combined with the f/2 (T3.2) maximum aperture makes this lens an excellent choice for portrait work.
Smooth Trans Focus. The Laowa 105mm features a Smooth Trans Focus system comprised of two separate diaphragms and an apodization (APD) element. The APD element works similarly to a graduated ND filter, with the clear portion at the center of the lens, getting darker around the edges. The front diaphragm uses fourteen blades to shape the bokeh that the APD helps to create, while the rear diaphragm controls light transmission and depth of field.
Fully Manual Lens. This is a fully manual lens that provides no electronic communication with the camera. You must manually make all aperture and focus adjustments on the lens itself, and lens information is not transferred through EXIF data. Its minimum focusing distance is just under three feet.Optics. The Laowa 105mm’s eleven-element/eight-group design includes three low-dispersion elements and one high-refractive element. This optical design keeps chromatic aberrations under control and delivers sharp, clear images.
