not sure, reeading this review it seems it doesnt even meet the advertised specs… i think the manker mk35 is way better.

MK35 is better, but the difference in throw is small and in price is large.
Advertised specs are a bad joke, but nevertheless MF02 is a good deal.

I’m waiting for my MF02 to arrive and frankly I have mixed feelings about it.
On one hand I wouldn’t buy any other big thrower available – each extra candela above what MF02 offers costs a lot of money (Niwalker, Thrunite, Manker) or a lot of bulk (BLF GT).
On the other hand I wonder if there will be something better available next year.
But it probably doesn’t make sense to wait without having anything on the horizon. That’s why I didn’t cancel my preorder after seeing reviews.

The plan is to put an E2 3C. in it

Think $90 + a $5. E2 = 535kcd output
Find me better value for that throw ?

Is this Mateminco MT35 the same as the Astrolux MF02?
