    If I recall correct this is very near the same as OPSL blue.

    Just as I plan any upgrade the parts for said upgrade always become yesterdays technology.
    I got two Osram 450nm 1.4W diodes waiting to be fitted by Rob (Stanwax).

    ^ yeh, me too
    Oh, and I need to mention that the original post / finder of this new diode was not me, but a new member Crazy who posted this over on the "interesting ebay finds" thread.

I imagine we will see these in higher powers soon, and hopefully with less crapworthy divergence (or a multiwatt single mode- we can wish, I guess )

    Wellll .. crunched a few numbers earlier and it looks like roughly 2.5X. 445=.030 and 465=.074, using a standard 555=1.000 table.
    --and credit goes to you too Stiffler for the re-post on another thread which brought this new find to everyone's attention
    Cheers !!

    So that basically means this should appear as bright as the brightest 445 available...I wonder what the beam quality will be:-)

    There's some smart people on this forum. I'm sure that the beam quality will get sorted out
