/ Black Diamond Icon v LED Lenser H7R.2
I am looking for a new powerful head torch. I have a shortlist of the Black Diamond Icon and the new LED Lenser H7R.2
Has anyone any advice or thoughts on these?
BD Icon is awesome. The only thing I can think of to fault it on would be that you can't focus the beam at all.
Apart from that though it's brilliant.
I've got one of these for trail running, (the one with the red and black strap,)... look familiar?

I was given polar Icon (same as an icon, but with a long lead to the battery pack to get on your nerves) a while ago and really rate it. I've not found a problem with lack of focus. The single button is much easier than the likes of a Myo with gloves on. Never used the Lenser though so can't give a direct comparison.
