I have been looking at your pictures for 10 minutes. I even copied them and put them all on a word document side by side so I could compare them all at the same time. It looks like the only real difference is the tint of each beam. If I had to rank them as I see them it would be in this order.
First place 7G5
Second place M3X
Third place TK41
Forth place T40CS
That is the way they look to me when I copied and paste them side by side. I picked the order without knowing which one was which. They are all so close at this distance I doubt there is a nickle worth of difference in real life. This is when spill, battery life, different modes, fit and finish and the way they feel in your hand comes into play.
Great job ILIKEFLASHLIGHTS. Not only for the great beam shots, but for taking the plunge and buying them all so we can gleam from your experience.

I got a TK70 a few days ago, for 179.00 shipped from inside the USA.
I use these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-TENERGY-10000mAh-NiMH-RECHARGEABLE-D-1-2V-BATT...
8 for $24.99 shipped inside USA is a great deal. I haven't came off turbo mode yet, and I've been playing with the light non stop for a few days.
If you don't mind please tell me how you like it. Could you please tell me what charger you are using and how those Tenergy charge. Man this is a fun hobby.

OK guys here is some info from Shane by email. He is sending me the hand outs with all the info in the mail. This is what Fenix is coming out with in a few weeks.
They are coming out with the LD50, 41, 22, 30 and 12 along with HL 30 and an RC10 that he says looks bad ass.
WOW - Can you make this its own post so more people can see it?
I love Fenix lights and really look fwd to what new lights they will have...LD22? Is that an updated LD20?
You bet buddy.
What I really need to do is go take a good shot from each the Catapult V3 and SR51 and add them to the list here.
Thrunite Catapult V3 and Olight SR51 has been added to the list.
The information is coming in a package from Shane and it should be here he said Wed or Thu. Can't wait to try out the TK 41 he is sending.
Here is something I just saw posted from a guy from Russia on (that other site)!
LD50, as i know will be powered by 6xAA.LD41 - it is upgrade LD40 using XM-L and metal body.
One thing you will notice from buying from Shane is that he get's a package to you in usually 3 days.
Thanks...really looking fwd to these updates. Sounds good with the LD41, I never had interest in the LD40 due that plastic body...metal would be much nicer.
And I really hope they have a new LD20/LD10, because I was planning to order an LD10 but now I will wait to see whats up.
Got one for Christmas after reading Foy's review. I just remember this old adage "the quality remains long after the price is forgotten". But I am going crazy trying to find a holster to properly fit my light. One choice is the Maxpedition 1708G flashlight baton sheath, but I really don't like its design. Am I weird to try and find a holster to protect my Fenix? Any ideas, I'll even try to stitch one together from a kit if needed.

Hey check out the brand called "Ripoff ". You can find it in a youtube video and I ordered from ebay for about 16.00 shipped. Hope this helps, I thought it looked pretty good.
Don't buy that one. It does not fit. I will look for the right model # and post it. Darn it!!!!!!!
From what I can tell it is the BL-166. When I get it I will check it out.
I gotta say, that LED centering sucks though. 100 bucks for a light and they can't do any better than that?!? I'd at least send that picture to the seller and ask if this is typical. They might exchange it for you, if it bothers you.
Just got notification from the company that the Ripoff Bl-166DS is the model that will fit the Fenix TK 41. Just got the 41 in the mail and could not be happier. Will check it out tonight and see how she works.
I told you Shane is fast. He's awesome to deal with too.
You sure did ILF. I think anyone wanting to buy Fenix would be crazy to not use his services. He gives a special price to members of flashlight sites. He beats any price I have seen. Can't wait to order the TK 70 but that will have to be next month according to my financial manager (wife).
+1 on Pro-Tactical Shop.
I'm really excited to hear more about the LD50 pumping out 650L on 6xAA.
Anyone know of a good deal for the TK41?
It looks like I can get one for about $110 on eBay, but I think I remember someone mentioning that it could be had for about $100 somewhere.
Just got the Ripoff BL-166DS and it fits the TK 41 perfectly. Pretty good quality and I am totally satisfied with it. I like that the top strap goes over the lens and has a velcro closure. Very satisfied.
Fenix jsut released a diffuser for the TK41. Check it out:
I know where you can get one for around $100 shipped.
I think the TK41 is the best C-note you can spend on a torch. Wish I could afford one to keep in my car as well.
Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!
Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...
And those are some nice cars.
Just went out and tested mine for the first time. You guy's were right on with your advice. The TK 35 has pretty nice flood and range and is excellent for that purpose but the TK 41 has a tighter spot and greater distance. Mine has a white as white beam and I could not be happier. I was so thrilled with this lite I ordered the TK 70 tonight from Shane. Oh boy here we go. I think the TK 41 is a go to lite for sure.
Glad to hear how much you like it!
P.S. Thanks for the PM!
