Pros:
I have alot of DX lights and this is another winner. It's also the only focussing light I have from them. Focus works well and has a rigid rotary click to hold each setting. I wasn;t expecting that but it's a great feature. Light is well made and solid. Finish is even and well applied. like any light in this price range and lumen, it's a good deal.
Cons:
None so far other tha nthe threads being dirty and the lense has smudges o nthe inside. Easy fixes but it shows poor QC. Not a deal breaker but worth mentioning. I can see the clip breaking in the future but as long as I don't abuse it, it should be fine.
Other:
I would like to have had the clip reversed so the light points down ward. This is a personal thing.
Bottomline:
Another great AA light. Well built and a change from all of my other lights.
