    Any tips where I can order the Surefire HS1 and HS2 Filter Set and have it shipped to Amsterdam?

    B&H sells it for $18 but won't ship Surefire parts to the EU as does Amazon, one guy sells it on eBay for almost $50 including shipping and enforced sales tax which I don't have to pay. Other places I can find are small websites I'm not familiair with or don't have them in stock.

    So, who knows a trusted shop which ships the filter set to the EU?

    No, not the artifacts or unevenness produced by the light's lens. The 'prism' effect is a band of light in four (on my light) close but distinct lines that project out and around the lens in a circle or semi circle at almost a 90 degree angle. The band of light has slight color to the ring like a rainbow, that's why some call it a 'prism' effect. I was familiar with it prior to getting my light after reading a thread here on CPF in regards, I'll try to link the thread below as it has pictures of this prism or halo like effect. Now, when I got my light and the effect wasn't there I assumed they fixed it through production however in time I noticed it more and more so either I initially missed it or it developed, hence my call to SF to see it there was anything I could do to correct it. Looking at the light it seems the tip of the fresnel lens is where the effect is produced.

    Oh I see. I do notice that but maybe mine is the neutral tint Vision it is not so obvious and apparent.
    The love of light is the reason why I don't walk in darkness. But darkness has it's beauty...Sadly, my lights are much more beautiful!!
