    I like the darker colour of the bezel
    and $370 is a good price.

    That is one respectable flash light. Well done Fenix! Price is ok but I hope someone can do a decent promotion or sale on it.

    Looks like a very nice light. At 35 lumens, those who want the super lumen search facility, can use it for normal garage use, making it practical.
    If this is the manufacturer's price, the retail is going to be where some posters here predicted it to be.

    Fenix sets the minimal and maximal pricing for their lights.

    Wow, the 5 brightness levels are well-spaced. Hopefully the strap is wide enough for a comfortable carry.

    Impressive light!
    There is another thread about this light, isn't it easier to keep it in the same thread?

    Well as of right now, if you can afford it, this is probably one of the best power-outage lights in the world lol. 15 hours at 550 lumens? Dang--- just point at the ceiling and keep doing whatever you were doing (provided what you were doing wasn't needing electricity lol).

    USB chargeable??

    It is not USB chargeable. If it would, I wouldn't buy it.

    As far as I know (and that is not a lot in this regard)
    With a 500 to 600 mA max it would take forever to recharge.
    USB charging is nice for Your cell phone, or possibly lights with smaller battery's.
    Any one with a correction on this?

    agreed! although tablet chargers and cables are capable of 2A charge (mine is, anyway)

    If you wait a month after release, it might come down quite a bit. Look at how low the Nitecore TM 26 is now!

    I like it, but I am just not 100% sold on the looks. It would've been nice if they made a smoother transition between the body and the head. It would have made for a more aesthetic light.

    It would have been longer and up to a 1lb or so heavier. Fenix seems to have scaled this light just barely large enough to be able to run it on turbo at an average 65-70F without it over heating or stepping down. For the target audience appearance isn't nearly as important as function. This is the kind of light that could replace an HID spotlight in my backpack and I don't want to carry one more ounce than necessary...lol

    Aesthetics can be nice for some, but this light is designed for functionality.
    I agree with Patriot that for professional use every ounce counts.

    And about overpricing???
    This could be a light that is able to compete with HID lights.
    Did You ever buy a 3000+lm HID light in the same size as the RC40? something like a Polarion? now THAT is pricy
