This review is from: Canon 9518A002 SLR Lenses EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens Black
Pros: Outstanding UWA lens.. Works great on my XTi body and has come to replace my 24-105mm L as my fav. lens (for now). It is very sharp and has smooth zoom and focus ring movement.
Cons: Did not come with the canon EW-83E hood. Would be nice if canon would change it to where all there lenses come with the hoods.
Other Thoughts: I was also looking at the Tokina 11-16mm and a Sigma 10-20mm, but after a lot of reading and question asking went with this one.
This has been a great addition to my lens lineup. I find myself using it more than any of my lenses and is so much fun..
Lineup: 10-22mm, 24-105mm, 70-200mm, 50mm
This review is from: DFI LANPARTY DK X38-T2R LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I have always wanted to try a DFI MB in my AMD rigs. This MB was used in my first ever Intel build and its a great/forgiving MB.. It has a outstanding bios with tons of features. I am using a e7200 processor on it and have it running stable at 3.6 ghz on air.
One neat thing is that there are 2 Bios reset jumpers and they both can be used alone to reset the bios. The second one is located below the PS2 plugs in the back and they also included extra long jumps for this to be able to grab them easy.
Other Thoughts: DFI DK x38-T2R MB, Intel e7200, 2 gigs Corsair XMS2, Visiontek HD3870, WD Raptor, Zerotherm BTF90 HSF, Thermaltake DuOrb VGA cooler, 500 watt PSU.
Will be switching it to Water soon.
Pros: I installed this pair a week ago and it has been running like a champ.. They are installed in my rig listed below. Have the timings set at 5-4-4-6 and running at 1128 mhz right now with no problems..
Cons: They have to run at 800 mhz till AMD releases a Phenom processor near 3 gigs for them to run at 1066.. Not buying a Phenom till they get that high.
Other Thoughts: My Rig: AMD 6000+ @ 3.4 Gigs, ASUS M3A32-MVP Motherboard, 2 gigs of Crucial Balistix tracers, 2x VisionteK HD3870's in Crossfire, ASUS PhysX Card, 2x WD SATA Raptors Striped, 700 Watt PS, Water Cooled: Single loop, 2 Swiftech 350 pumps w/OCLabs tops, BIX 240 & 360 rad's, 3 Swiftech water blocksREAD FULL REVIEW
