Thanks 1320.

Seems I read that the R2 does get brighter all the way up to 2 amps,  where the Q5 doesn't get much brighter above 1.5 amps or so.

Does the XR-E  R2 have a small die that has the angle of light projecting forward like the  XP E-Q5 and works just as well in aspherics but brighter and better ?
