Just curious but does anyone know the lumens the K2 puts out?
Also which is brighter?
K2 (http://www.gearreview.com/2007_led_lights.php) (scroll down)
If James is here or someone can hail James I'd like his opinion on this as well.

NiteHawk was rather stiff lipped about the brightness in lumens when I asked. :(

If the K2 in NiteHawk can infer a Luxeon K2 emitter then the light output will be at best 140 Lumens.
The Dinotte 200Ls probably use Seoul Z-LED P4 ( 240 Lumens max ) to get their quoted 200 Lumens output.

On a related note, I was just looking at the K2 on the weekend. The power switch was almost impossible to push. :(
The Seoul is approximately twice as efficient as the Luxeon.

I never could figure out the manufacturers that spec a switch that's hard to push -
are they making the user think twice about using the light?
