Anyone have any further information on this? I'm pretty certain it's an LEP. Price is likely to be exorbitantly high as well, but that's just a guess.

About $4-5k.

Pre-production prototype is getting tweaked. Production currently taking a back seat to the lower-spec, lower-cost S50 which microfire submitted for a large government bid.

Production is still planned, the "LE/military agencies" is certainly not from microfire: they've made it clear they'll take my money happily.

I'll update this post when/if I get more updates from by microfire contact.

Excellent information, thank you!

I inquired about being placed on a list for the S90, but they keep trying to convince me to buy the Optispike S50 instead. I'm not interested in that model, but I'm having a difficult time getting them to understand that. The emails are going slowly as due to time zones they reply while I'm sleeping, and vice versa. Seems like the S90 is months away, and perhaps they're trying to get ride of the rest of the S50's as they're pretty much made obsolete by the new model.

It's a small company. From what I've been told, no plans to dump S50 - it's a smaller and much less expensive option (as in ~ 1/2 the price of the S90).

Looks like a pretty exciting light, specs say 9000m of throw! I'm excited myself to see the evolution of Lep's, I currently own 2, for these I'll really need to save up!

Looks like an upgrade is on the way.

"Light Storm S90 is under development and the updated version S100 will be available by the end of year. S100 will be featured by a brand new laser diode light source and the max range will be not shorter than 9 km. Meanwhile, it will be more rugged to bear the shock and drop."

All jokes aside, with lights like this, maybe mounting a pair of binoculars directly to the light might be a good idea. 5 1/2 miles? Dude, come on..........
