It came in yesterday!

Next to my ZT200.

In my hand.

At ~10' the spot is about 8" across.

Same distance the flood beam is about 8' across.

They claimed about 300 lumens from this LED. Judging by the ocular check and the heat it generated after playing around for about 3 min, I'd say it's probably between 200-300. However, the beam on the wall doesn't seem as bright as that. Maybe 100-150. I suspect it has to do with the focusing lens.

Here's the spot next to direct sunlight.

Over all the casting and threads are a bit rough, however it feels solid, has some heft to it, all the various seals seem to be decent quality and the sliding focus ring has a good consistent movement with no rattling.

For the money it seems like a fantastic buy, but we'll see how long it lasts.
