    You may either cancel the reservation or those who selected Titanium get first dibs on the Mn-Bronze and Brass that will be made available with the first run. You may also switch to Al-Bronze but that would delay the reservation as I have already finished with the Al-Bronze for the first run.
    Material selection for the future runs is uncertain at the moment and will depend partly on how Mn-Bronze is received and ages.

    Is there any way I could stay on the list to see what upcoming materials may be offered or should I just cancel and then watch for later posts.

    Received mine today - only day in the office in a month. Looks great - it will be on it's way up to Quebec this week, Georgia next week. The workmanship is certainly as good as anything else I have. I couldn't see where the two parts mated until I knew where it was.

    Well my Regulus has been with me for few days now and I couldn’t be more happy. The beam, tint, workmanship......

    Agreed. If Devin can make this a consistent offering I can see a large demand for it.

    This certainly tells a lot about the craftsmanship.

    To be honest I'm usually not a fan of smaller lights but the new McRegulus hasn't been out of my pocket since I received it. I'm also noticing that the Mn-Bronze isn't taking a natural patina a quickly as my Al-Bronze light did. This is kinda nice as I like the light straw color of the material.

    Must be a difference in skin chemistry, I found Mn-Bronze to patina faster and much darker than Al-Bronze.

    It was an option straight from Devin and I was glad I was able to get one. Thanks for the compliment!

    @jdboy - what do you think about the McRegulus reflector vs the "naked" TIR optic?

    I wish I could tell you but I didn't get an optic with mine. I prefer a reflector to an optic in general but I'd love to see one of Devin's Regulus optic equipped lights in person to compare.

    Hope someone can share some beamshots side by side - McRegulus vs Regulus TIR.

    Ultra-close white-wall shot so it isn't the best comparison. Medium spot in the middle, McR-20 on the right.
    Actual use the spill is bigger but not quite as much as this picture suggests.

    I have both and I greatly prefer the reflector. The TIR does have a very pleasing beam but there's something about the reflector that's just so clean and I love the traditional hot spot/spill shape

    Any chance someone has comparison beamshots for the reflectored Regulus vs a Haiku ?

    I don't have a Haiku anymore. the Sigma uses the McR20 and the Haiku is a McR19xx something. as I recall the McR20 has a wider beam profile, plus it varies on what emitter too....

    okay. Not exact, but hopefuly close....
    about 12" from wall

    Sigma McRegulus (N219C) on left, Aleph with McR19xx (SSC P4 U-bin) on right.

    Thanks much.

    Original (XR-E) Haiku used the McR-17XR ...

    Other Haiku emitters have used different reflectors.

    McRegulus 219c on right, Haiku XPG2 on left. 12" from wall, the four default modes for both of them.

    Album

    Mode 4.



    Haiku was angled a tad more as you can see but very similar beam patterns, higher output on the McRegulus of course. McRegulus has a larger spill and larger hotspot but the difference between the hotspot and spill is more pronounced than on the Haiku. Haiku hot spot is smaller but quickly fades into a bright but smaller spill.

    How much of that is a function of the smaller XPG2 or the higher output on the McRegulus is hard to determine
