    The EB2 will outperform the LX2 on high by a lot, 16,000cd versus 9,000 for the LX2.
    You'll find the head a bit bigger though, and the LX2's low mode rated at 15 lumens(but is really 30-40) is very useful as a general purpose mode.
    I find the 5 lumen low on the EB2 and E1D a bit low for that kind of use.

    I have both LX2, EB2 as clicky and twisty model. Loke robert said, the EB2 is much brighter.

    The biggest difference today would be the LX2 has a 2 stage twisty, the EB2 has a clicky. The twisty version of the EB2 is not available anymore since a year or so...
    Still looking for Surefire G2 in Orange.
    If you have one you don't like please PM me.

    Yes, too bad for the EB1 and EB2 that SF dropped the fantastic two stage press/twisty on those, what were they thinking.

    I really like the 15 lumen low, I think the EB2 should have 15 lumens for low as well to make it a lot more versatile.
