My definition of “soon” as it relates to the FW3A. ……
….. “It will happen within 2.25 months, which is 10% of the previous 22.5 months since the FW3A was Officially announced; 4 May 2017… the day of the OP.”

That’s my story & I’m sticking to it…. . Wink . Big Smile . Big Smile

soon /so͞on/adverb

  • 1. in or after a short time: “everyone will soon know the truth”
    synonyms: in a short time, shortly, presently, in the near future, before long, … more
  • 2. used to indicate one’s preference in a particular matter:
    “I’d just as soon Tim did it” , “I ‘hope’ it happens soon”.

Oh that’s great. I just got a d4 with the sst-20 4000k, and really enjoy it. Does anyone know why it is difficult to get ahold of the LH351D? Is it a demand issue? Just curious.

I believe this is not entirely true!
As said here by Toykeeper :

ToyKeeper wrote:
[…]The supplier has been unable to get LH351D yet, so the first run is almost certainly going to be XP-L HI 3D only. After that, I’m not sure if it’ll be SST-20, LH351D, or other XP-L HI tints.

One thing is to talk about the emitter, another is to already have it as an option!

No problem, it is hard to keep track of all the relevant info after a while! Still, it is better to mention post #1 for the last updated information. Many things said in the middle are wishful thinking and our desires, what may be confuse. So, it is better to check post #1 or the posts from Toykeeper and tatasal that have been providing the last updates Beer

Sorry, not even an ETA of the optics!

Any other talk is speculative, and I avoid speculations!

We are hoping it will be 2019. Some of us predicted even the first half of 2019. Honestly though, we have absolutely no idea. Things all have to come together, and they haven’t yet. There could be more delays. A lot of us have been following this for a very long time. All we can do is be patient, and as said previously in this thread by a wise and patient person, enjoy the lights we do have, while we wait.

Yes, I have said this I believe at least twice already lol!

Chances are, how many of us here have lights still in their boxes, just tested, some even unopened?

I even have untested brand-new chargers!

Again, enjoy what’s in your inventory…while we wait for the next Paypal.

If SST-20 4000K 95 CRI is an option, that’s what I’d prefer!

Much higher throw, comparable to the XP-L HI, and much better red color rendition.

If you thought a R9050 emitter made everything look great, then an R9580 emitter is an absolute beauty outside.
