I just received my Ultrafire WF-008 a few days ago, and I thought some pictures would help everyone that wanted to know more about it before they purchased it. I purchased mine from a place with initials of "DX", and after a month-long
back-order, it was shipped and at my house within two weeks. The light came with a lanyard, but no grease at all.
After a lens cleaning and proper greasing, I tried it out and was very impressed until I found out it had a strobe
function...who needs this on a thrower?
Anyway, The click switch on the back enables you to switch functions between a three-mode Cree emitter (Hi - Lo - Strobe)
without pressing the switch all the way.
Here are some pictures of the light itself, note the (un?)finished silver finish:

Now, Some Beamshots:
To show some reference, I used two other lights. From left to right, a Solarforce L2 with single mode emitter, 18650 configuration, a Solarforce L2 with Cree MC-E Dropin, 18650 configuration, and the WF-008, 18650 configuration.
--Pictures are 5-second exposure, 800ISO--
The L2, stock, target around 120 feet:
The L2, MC-E dropin, same target:
Now, the WF-008, High Mode, Same Target:
WF-008 Low Mode, Same Target:
Target at tree, around 130 feet, WF-008, High Mode:
Here are some 8-second exposures, 800ISO:

Here is a Beam profile on a green wall, approximately 3 feet away on high mode to give you a rough idea of the overall shape:
Hope you enjoyed the review!
