    Can the next passaround candidate please add some comparison beamshots? It's hard to judge the light without comparisons.

    Look at mine again. I made several comparisons on the lounge 2018 and on my own thread. In fact all my posts were based on comparisons.

    Exactly . People at TLF have quite some experience with Oslon Black Flat's , and they say Oslons have serious differences between them unlike Cree leds .

    I think the TN42 with the dedomed xp-g2 was a very good deal too . A little more wide beam (not really visible difference) , 15-20% more lumens but 10% less throw .

    Maybe because the TK61vn V4 has a tighter center beam.The TN42vn 90 also has noticeably more peripheral light which does not show up in the photos that well.

    This[Inconsistencies] was posted on here ~ 2 months or so ago from Info. a guy on BLF had posted on there.

    I am definitely a person who is sometimes too focused on numbers. In this case it really will not be noticeable unless you have Superman eyes!

    1.23Mcd=2218m/2426yds. of throw
    1.1Mcd=2098m/2294yds. of throw

    A difference of 120m/132yds.....just bragging rights which a lot of us like including myself!

    Overall I would take a big fat hot spot w/ a lot of lumens[TN42vn 90] over a pencil beam 1.23Mcd/750 lumen light any day!!

    But I still love my OSLON M25C2vn T- 552Kcd/1485m/1624yds.

    BTW It out throws BOTH the U21vn and SR52vn w/ the same OSLON LED!

    We have posted it before. Osram does not bin their LEDs. One reel of black flats could include many different brightness bins of black flats.

    That could very well explain the lux difference, or it could just be not as good of a focusing job on the lesser lux one as well.

    or light be a few inches closer to the lux meter, diff ambient light, different person holding the light, lux meter battery tad lower, lux meter just being a lux meter, etc........
    thats really not that much diff at all at that level

    yah I shined the 1.1 and the 1.23 to a distant tree and can barelyyyy see a little difference. Actually I dont know if I actually saw a difference or its just mentality as I know the meters reads more LOL

    if the kelvin is off by a few hundred between the 2 actual leds, it might throw it off also.
    ive heard most lux meters favor a higher kelvin, or more pure white light
    something else to consider

    Enderman and koef3 at BLF claimed otherwise - that reels are unbinned, but emitters within each reel are quite consistent.

    Good one! It does appear to be the pinnacle of the category, given amazing (if not record breaking) throw, the humongous hot spot, and 2/5 the weight of the BLF-GT. And while $600 isn't an economy light, it's more than fair for a light of this caliber!
