That body and tail cap looks a LOT like my TK50 on steroids. I would bet it is a D cell light but more in the 6-8 cell category? Limited use capabilities due to size a big negative factor for me.

It does look very long, too long for 3 or 4 D cells. Who would buy this apart from lumen junkies? I presume it might appeal to police forces and fire brigades, as equipment for special situations rather than every day use, and security work.

Why didn't Fenix just use 7 xp-g's? 2/3/2 (like the Infiniti Q45 headlight of yore)
An S2 or S3 in the center, surrounded by 6 R5's (the center being harder to cool, so it should reject less heat, for less light/thermal losses)

It would be amazing if Fenix is able to put on the market a 2000 lumen light under $300. That is something no other company can top considering the quality Fenix delivers.
Chinese manufacture is truly the future.

I'm kinda disappointed no update or new version of the Fenix TK30 :(

The TK70 looks amazing though. Oh how I missed CPF :)

The prototype uses 4x D NiMH cells. Maybe it looks little bit longer on the pictures than in reality. But the head is really massive :)

:faint: Wasn't expecting 1000-2000 lumens range for another year. Knowing Fenix this will likely be under 200$. Good thing I put the brakes on for XM-L technology to catch up with my spending...

hmmmmm the 760 lumen TK45 is still running $130-$150 range..........so i really don't see the 2000 lumen TK70 being under $200.00 BUT the Olight SR90 is 2200 lumen, is not as long as this TK70, and is about $450.00 depending on where you look. so to stay competitive Fenix would have to keep this light below the comparative lumen SR90 (which is smaller length wise and probably lighter), but higher priced than the TK45 & TK40/TK41 cause if its too close to those in price, people will buy it instead. the masses will always buy a bigger light compared to a smaller light when in the same price range, even though they may be for totally different things......id say this light will be $300.00 - $400.00 to stay competitive but still make a large profit.

I was kind of hoping for a XM-L TK11 but the tk41 sure looks nice.

It was only a matter of time before they updated the TK50 to XM-L. I hope it is 4 D cells in the TK70.

TK50 still has XP-G and I don't think they'll swap it to XM-L.

The TK21 looks sweet. I wonder if it has good throw?
Probably no throw at all, TK15 with 2x smaller emitter can't hit 10klux.

TK41 has the two side clickys like the TK45....nice!!! :thumbsup:

The TK21 looks even better. The TK15 is my favorite Fenix, and the only common complaint is that the side clicky is hard to find with a glove on. Looks like they took care of that by mounting the clicky on a big flat spot. Awesome. :) :) :)

What is your source for these prices?

If the TK21 sells at $85, it will be excellent!!!
Is it using a 18650??
