I ordered one from the AliExpress store with the adjusted price. Thanks
I clicked to buy, sent them an email, went to bed,woke up this morning to an email saying they adjusted the price and gave me a link. Followed the link and completed the checkout.

Actually only 23 orders were placed. Guess some BLFers are too busy.

Happy to know I'm one of the 23 that ordered one!  Once I show it off to friends and neighbors again, many more orders will follow.

I was order mine the first day they were available. The last time I ordered a flashlight to sofirn by Aliexpress was a month ago and it took 2 weeks just to get to Spain. I hope this order looked similar! I really want to receive it!

A week ago Barry promised me to send a sample Sofirn Q8 as a thanks for starting this thread, it was send out 4 days ago and I received it today, wow that was fast! There was nothing special about the mail carrier or the packaging (the usual plastic envelope) but it must have been some express service.

So I’m lucky to be able to give some first impressions Smile

The appearance, well, as announced it is the Q8 with the flats on the battery tube removed.

Also on the inside I see familiar parts.
The performance, completely stock, on freshly charged 30Q’s at 30 seconds, I measure 4700 lumen (I corrected for my djozz-lumen being a bit high), and 106 kcd throw. So the light output is similar to the XP-L version but the throw pretty much has doubled. I did not expect the stock light to have that good output with a V3 XP-L Hi ! (was expecting 4300lm). Thumbs Up

So how is the beam compared to the BLF-Q8? I’m afraid I do not have a stock Q8 Facepalm , but here it is compared to BLF Q8’s with Samsung LH351D leds and Luxeon V leds (left SofirnQ8, middle LH351D, right LuxeonV, all on comparable low setting, 3 meter from wall)


As you expect from XP-L Hi leds, the Sofirn Q8 has a nice tight hotspot, the leds seem well in focus.
So there you go, the Sofirn Q8, as far as my initial observations from this one sample go, is almost exactly what it promised to be.

Thanks for the pics djozz. I like the way the light background brings out the concave shape ‘under’ the fins. Definitely some kind of express shipping. Mine posted 5 days ago and still in GUANGZHOU (CN) by the looks of it Smile

@djozz, that throw figure is amazing for such a large quad LED light.

100kcd+ is on the level of a FET C8, which is a very throwy light.

On another note, I have to say, the LH351D beam on that Q8 looks gorgeous Love

Yes, the throw figure is really good, the Q8 is nowadays a weak one among the big lumen lights, but it beats them all in throw (well, not the GT70 Innocent )

For the record, I measured the light quality of the hotspot at max power: 70.5 CRI, 6550K, almost on top of the BBL (Duv=+0.0021)

Next step is to place an order on Sofirn Ali Express store select ‘other’ payment and leave a message with your BLF username. The price will be adjusted and you can then proceed with payment. Mine was adjusted within the hour.

Yes, but people still have to post here to get their name on the list. Otherwise the price will not be adjusted. So he is doing it correct. (If your saying it’s not correct)
