Re: Thrower review: DBS, Spear, MRV, Tiablo, Regal & clones: THROW, RUNTIMES, BEAMSHO
The "stock" lens in my lightly used A8 that I mod'd to a Q5 appeared to have no AR plus it had some light scratches on it, so I went ahead and swapped it out for a UCL that I bought along with some other UCL lenses. I don't have a Lux meter, but I feel better about it. :nana:It all comes down to how good the stock lens is to start with, and as Stefan pointed out there seems to be a lot of variability there. Since we are all working from typically only one "representative" example of each light in our own collections, it is hard to be more precise. But I have noticed that newer higher end lights (e.g. DBS V2, RaidFire, etc.) are typically coming with very nice coated lenses.
