I have the 4000k J2 that I believe is a 5A in a light and it really looks good. But, there is a little oddness in the corona. The Nichia is not bad, but it also suffers from oddness in the corona. I would look at the purpose you plan… will the 5×5 be the best choice or will the smaller Nichia?

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
S2+, XM-L2 T6 4C

These emitters really are suited for totally different niches. I don’t understand the point of the question.

Nichia 219: Small die, high cri, very nice light output
XHP50.2: Large die, very high outputs possible.

You would need radically different sized reflectors for anywhere near a similar beam shape.
