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 Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 18mm f/2.8 for Nikon
The Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 18mm f/2.8 for Nikon is a high-quality manual-focus lens designed for Nikon DSLRs, and an update to the popular Zeiss ZF.2 18mm f/3.5. Key features include:
Wide Angle. A 99° field of view would definitely fall under the wide-angle category on a full-frame camera. The Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 18mm f/2.8 for Nikon is an excellent choice for landscape and architecture photography, or if you want to shoot your own version of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. The f/2.8 maximum aperture is nearly a stop improvement over its ZF.2 predecessor, meaning you get better low-light performance.
Close Focus. The Zeiss Milvus ZF.2 18mm f/2.8 for Nikon has a 9.8-in. minimum focusing distance, which will make for crazy distortion on your subject as well as an expansive sense of depth. This can also help you achieve some truly Kubrickian shots
Advanced Optics. The Milvus ZF.2 18mm f/2.8 continues Zeiss’s legacy of phenomenal optics. This lens features four anomalous partial-dispersion glass elements within a floating-elements system, as well as two aspherical elements that control distortions and aberrations while retaining sharpness and clarity at any focus distance. The enhanced T* anti-reflective coating controls ghosting and flare for a color-neutral image that still flaunts that famous high micro-contrast “Zeiss look.”
High-Quality Build. The Milvus ZF.2 18mm f/2.8 features a weather-resistant construction with internal seals to guard against dust and moisture, while a blue sealing ring at the lens mount protects the lens-camera interface. The all-metal lens barrel has a frosted, anodized surface for increased durability.
Modern Manual Focus. This fully manual-focus lens features a 145° focus throw and rubberized focus ring for improved tactile control, while still providing electrical communication with the camera to control aperture and communicate EXIF data.Click On. Click Off. The 18mm Milvus f/2M ZF.2 line offers an aperture ring that features 1/2-stop clicks throughout the f/2.8-22 range, as well as the ability to mechanically switch to clickless operation.
