No complaints about Lumintop putting a rabbit on the button instead of some other animal!?

I’m shocked, I tell you. Shocked!

Just a reminder, if you don’t like the color of the clip or host some sandpaper and even metal polish is always an option…

I don’t like it either. But better that, than etched on the side of the light somewhere. I like the clean look of this with no logos on the bezel or battery tube.

Hmm. What happened to “No marking/logo for a clean look”?

well things have changed, the initial plan said it was gonna use the samsung emitters, now it seems at the moment that wont happen so.. i dont see this as a big deal really im happy the light is coming to its end.

if im gonna guess on the logo on the switch, i think that lumintop wants a little logo on the light so people can tell its a lumintop. i know this was not the idea from the start, it said no logos etc but i dont bother with this really, others will i guess..

C’mon CRX, are you telling us that you will not make that bunny “enlightened”? Evil

I know what you mean, a “no logo” button would be nice!
IMO, though, this is something I can live with once I have it in my hands! Wink

While I think I preferred no logo (at least for the group buy, idc what they do after), it won't stop me from buying.

Honestly, Lumintop would be foolish to not let the public have an idea who made the light. There are going to be thousands of these in pockets, in backpacks, in desk and side table drawers and not giving the public a clue about the manufacturer would be a colossal blunder.

They could’ve made mention of it earlier on, but can you blame them for advertising?

/\ +1 Nope, can’t blame them at all. Smart move on their part. And it is very, very subtle to boot. Not in any way gaudy or ugly.

Looks pretty easy to sand & polish the logo off if it bothers you that much.

That’s great.

but
I hope that people who see this photo will not be misunderstood.

My FW3A is a prototype.
I am not sure about the final version style.

No laser rabbit on the button

Sorry for my poor english.

If the circle of the logo would at least be centered on the switch.. god that triggers me. xD Or just use the bunny and let the round button be the round circle of the logo design.
It also destroys TKs favourite reflection feature of the light. xD

I think it looks better without the logo.

That said, it looks easy enough to sand off if desired. While I would prefer the group buy have no logo I will buy it either way.

If the rabbit is actually on the production light, you can put me in for a second one. I know somebody who will be thrilled to get one with that logo.

As for me, I am fine either way…

Now that I think about it, without a logo would be slightly better.

But it's not a dealbreaker for me, and the logo could look a lot worse.

The logo will not be a showstopper, but from the first post: ‘‘No marking/logo for a clean look’‘. So strange to put a logo on it and I really liked the first buttons with the circular machine marks.
