I am looking for that first Cree light but have been unable to decide. I was thinking about the Lumapower D-Mini (with OP reflector). Is the Raw Aluminum weaker than the anodized black, and will it rust faster. I was very dissapointed that the new Fenix Cree lights do not have textured reflectors. I have personally seen a P1D CE, and hate the beam. Is there a Cree light with a beam as smooth as my HDS. The Lumapower lights with Orange Peel reflectors look promising. I had been holding out for a Cree light, and now because of the infamous rings, I am holding out even longer. Hopefully the Lumileds new claim of 115 lumens per watt will be true. There really is nothing like the great beam you can get from a luxeon. Please help me decide on what light to purchase.
