Played with it at the trade show... The light field from the lamp is amazing.  I will defiantly spec these onto some installs

LOL - sometimes this mistake comes at a great time!

Lamp looks interesting, though - especially the wash functionality.

Got a chance to play with them, they are bright, FAST and really lightweight. You find yourself not really believing what you see.  If it was CMY it would be all over for me.

Great color, even beam field.

That being said, it will be the new light that we use if they ever start shipping them.......

Bright compared to what?

I thought the 5R was a cheapo bulb that was being introduced for low end fixtures? Am I wrong here?

No expert here but you can see in a video on YouTube from their booth at some show (I forget which) that it's quite a bit superior to both their 250-watt discharge and even a 500-watt one. And it's field is completely even white where all the others (they have like 8 different comparable fixtures right next to it, all pointing to a white wall) are very uneven by comparison.

So it's my impression that they're not a budget-thing.

I have a pair and am planning on replacing my MAC250's with them.  Paul's description of being "bright, FAST, and really lightweight" is spot on.  I love the frost feature; rather than looking into a separate wash unit I now can buy the same fixture to do either task.  It is much brighter with no color and the saturated colors such as red (completely unusable on the MAC250) are highly visible.  The gobos are a little more difficult to remove than on a MAC250, but it's not a deal breaker.  The menu system is easier to navigate with full color and actual text.

Update:::: these lights are very very impressive. I have since bought 6 more, the output is unreal. The colors are great, they are smooth in motion and very quiet. there is not one thing bad to say about them. although they do run warm, the 5r lamp is truly truly amazing.
