So all the movement is internal?

A few conclusions and drawbacks:
- it should reach 750-900 lumens depending on the focus (which is not bad)
- a bit ringy beam (but much better than any aspheric)
- pretty bad mid-focus beam (hole in the middle, limited spill)
- average mode spacing (E25 UE is much better: 5, 50, 160, 350, 1000lm)
- you need to go through strobe to lock the light
- stepdown after 3 minutes appears to be timed
- no built-in overdischarge protection
- lens are quite narrow compared to bezel diameter
- I’d love to see MicroUSB charging dock instead of tripod mount

In short – interesting light but far from perfect.
