    How about an infinite rotary switch, but with detents at 1/3 and 2/3 max lumens (probably not same as 1/3 start to end distance).

    No statement about Nimh on product page:

    If I recall correct TA 21 has infinite rotary mode ring. I would like a light with rotary mode ring and tail switch(or on/off switch close to the mode ring) with 3 modes: 10, 100 and 500 lumen. Like with TA 30(which has 9, 60 and 225lm) Yes, strobe as well but you can easily feel with your hand in the darkness what mode you put on because it's a distinct mechanic design. That means you can avoid accidental activation of strobe and know which mode is active before you turn the light on even without using your eyes. I like that.

    I for one actually support the plastic body, so as long it is durable and of good quality(if we look at Streamlight/Pelican/UK, they are not all bad products).

    I do own the LD41 but the weight is around 190 grams, which is almost twice as much as this new LD42 at 100 grams. Although the LD41 is quite well built, I did wish to see an iteration in lighter material which could sustain minor fall and drops. This weight reduction is certainly a welcomed change to me, and let's hope it is reasonably durable for use. And I do appreciate Fenix continue the effort to make large reflector 'thrower' using the primary batteries, so in different battery types, people can always find options to what they need.

    I received this light yesterday. This light is quality through and through. Great interface, great beam. Very happy with this purchase.

    Come on Fenix, start offering neutral white as an option for all your lights. I stopped buying Fenix because of this very thing. I do love my neutral LD40 from back in the day. Still going strong with its plastic body, but please, more neutral.

    I agree on that. Last good batch was PD32UE with 4300K XML2 4C emitter

    I agree. Love Fenix, but wish they were a bit more like Thrunite, only in offering various tints. Even high cri options

    Anyone here bought the light? I am seriously considering to get it. But I wonder about the runtime. A reviewer at Amazon wrote about turbomode: "..it lasts more than 8 seconds and then reverts back to the next lower setting..."
    I don't know what that means, ~9s? Anyone measured the runtime before stepdown at turbomode?
