Can You Tell The Difference Between A $150 Camera Lens And A $15,000 One?

As any person with a bit of DSLR experience knows, the lens you use is as (if not more) important as the camera. But just how much does the average shutterfly have to spend to get “good enough” results? You’re not shooting the next Star Wars, so does it really matter if you don’t have $15,000 sitting around for a top-shelf Zeiss?


Famous New York Buildings Stranded In The Middle Of Nowhere Somehow Make More Sense

Sometime in the near future, eleven of New York City’s most famous landmarks have gone missing. Soon, they start to turn up in the some of the most desolate locations on the planet — perched high in a red rock mountain range, buried in a white sand desert — but no one knows why.

The Soviet Union. The USSR. The Iron Curtain. The Eastern Bloc. Lenin. Stalin. The Communist Party. The KGB. The Cold War. And awesomely designed bus stops?
