    My impressions,

    Pros

    + Nice packing
    + High quality machining, very solid construction
    + Perfect anodizing, no scratch etc
    + Perfectly centered leds
    + Clean reflector, lens surface, no dust etc,
    + Nice cool white tint (not yellowish, greenish tint)
    + Very good beam quality (no rings)
    + Powerful long throw with huge spill
    + Well lubricated threads, o-ring
    + The modes are well spaced (35lm, 150lm, 550lm, 1500lm, 3500lm)
    + Hidden strobe mode
    + No pwm or other irritating flickering etc
    + No buzzing sound
    + Battery indicator
    + Large heatsinks on head
    + 12V car charger adapter
    + Stunning performance (3500lm, 126000cd)
    + HUGE size, huge head, huge battery, I really like

    Cons

    - nothing

    Other comment

    - Fenix use BAK C18650CC (2600mAh) cells in battery pack. This is a good battery, the performance is very similar than Sanyo UR18650FM, but I think a 6*18650 battery holder (optional accessory) would be very good for own batteries.

    Would be nice if Fenix updates the RC40 at the end of this year, with XM-L2 U2 leds.

    At the end of this year, I wish Fenix launch a 4 x MT-G2 monster, with 8000 lumens or more. Else not much for me to upgrade from XML U2 to XM-L2 U2.

    Probably I will pay U$599 for one from Fenix since it will be a huge monster built by reputable brand.

    Outstanding beamshot pics,gopajti!

    Pics like the ones where your testing the RC40 on the road and on the field is the kind of pics one realy wants to see on a longdistance flashlight like the RC40. If you happen to live close to a large field(around 300meters long or so),could you please do a longdistance beamshot showing how the RC40 performs on a real longdistance? That would be awesome!Besides from Fenix own comercial pics, i have not seen so many real longdistance beamshots of the RC40.

    Does anyone have any beam shots comparing the RC40 to the Olight SR92?
