    It looks like something you'd get at a hardware/outdoors B&M store. Maybe this is their ticket to break into those market.

    The funny thing is, they are having a "Name the light" game ala 4Sevens.

    I too, however, would love to know what a "Cree OSRAM" LED actually is...

    I wonder how it works as a headlamp? I see the photos but it is not clear. Like that it comes with a diffuser plus a nice 5 lumen low mode.

    It is a zebralight with reflector and versatile head. So, it is a win! It is a pity zebralight still hasn't made something like that!

    This is just what I have longed for... a new light that does NOT go straight to the "Got To Buy" list!!!

    Thanks Fenix.

    I know that looks aren't everything, but really?!

    Well i think that it will be a best seller too.
    Aren't zebralights best sellers? So, how about a zebralight with greater reliability, movable angle head, good waterproofness, reflector? This is all. It might be bigger, but i think size is still good.
    And i am gonna buy it because that is what i was expecting from zebralight, but it came from fenix. For camping, for a lantern, for headamp for pocket lighting it is ideal.

    Now although it is ugly it could be just the ticket for a cheap utility light when I'm on duty with EMS. The deciding factor will be price!

    It's a nice alternative to tailstanding for indoor area illumination and I would find it great for camping to have directed as opposed to diffused light. I suppose it will depend on the price for me to consider picking one up. I agree that the aesthetics could have use some work.
    I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    It does look ugly lol.
    But at the same time extremely functional. Love the 90 degree angle capability, makes life easier in a whole lot of situations.

    Its hideously U-G-L-Y indeed. I'd prefer to be looking at myself the mirror first thing on a monday morning than to look at that.

    Can't wait to hear how much it costs.

    Unhappy Re: NEW FENIX MC10

    I'm amazed at how long it's taking manufacturers to figure out what an ergonomic and functional flashlight looks like. So this MC10 is just another close but no cigar design. Guess I ought to put in a PTO PP for my 4 year old drawing

    Cree is a typo

    The LED is Osram Golden Dragon plus
    luminous flux bin is LX =112-130lm/350mA
    6P is a chromaticity bin.

    This is much better bin than the one used in Nitecores (KY bin).

    full datasheet can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

    Wow that is ugly... but at least it's not rude looking like the fenix diffuser.

    That being said, depending on the price i know many people would would want this as a camping / utility light. Not everyone buys a flashlight for looks, function is much more important.

    I do a lot of night snow boarding and some area's a rather dimly lit. I wonder if this might fit the bill?

    Also noticed on the action shots that someone had it clipped onto the belt on their side. So does that imply that the clip can be rotated so that it sits on the side of the light rather than the back?

    If so that would be rather awesome. i could clip it to the my snow google straps and use it as a side mounted headlamp. Or have it on my chest, hip or shoulders.... that's is rather neat.

    It looks to me that the clip just snaps on so it probably can rotate.
    I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
