    Hey guys wondering if anyone has been able to see these in action. Really curious about getting a couple and converting a Mole 2k to LED. Any thoughts?

    Saw them at NAB. They're incredible. Ask about their focusing inserts that change the beam spread. The only downside is the downside of all LEDs I'd imagine.

    That would be killer if they could do a 5k in the future.

    I've been following these for a while, since they announced the 1K version & have been waiting to pull the trigger on one. Since then they've come out with the 2K version which gives you more bank for the buck, the 1K has since dropped in price. I've spoken to the rep a few times who told me about the 2K before it came out, he said that they had a 5K coming, he said they actually had some being beta tested out in the wild.

    I'm working on some used Moles to use with these. I'll be trying out a few 1Ks first to see how they look. I'd love to get me a few 2ks to mix in. A 5K would be incredible.

    Saw them at NAB. Brilliant! (Pun intended.) Looks like pretty easy conversion, too.

    I was sort of hoping people wouldn't find out about them so I could buy up old housings cheap! :-)

    I would love to see these drop in price by a couple hundred bucks. Sorry I won't relamp all my Moles at these prices. I could just purchase new lights for less than it would take to relamp them all.

    Love what VisionSmith is offering, just wish it didn't cost $1,000 to get a 2K LED. I understand the LEDs have excellent CRI and in regular daily use, the efficiency can pay back their cost in power/cooling savings. It's just hard to spend that kind of coin for what is essentially a replacement bulb. Perhaps someone can setup an RU group buy/discount...
