I've also got one, use it as my backup to my can light. I also have the twist on style, which I prefer. I have loaned this light out several times when other divers have light trouble, and it does the job. Great little light!

I disagree about the pushbutton. I just sent one back because the button failed after only two dives. I was told they've had some come back already. This is a new design, and I think it's got some bugs. I replaced it with the more standard twist-on version, as it's a proven, reliable design.

That said, it's a great light.

Make sure you get the updated version with the push button instead of the twist-on. Much easier to use, especially when hand mounted.

I've got one of those, one of the normal twist ones, and one of the longer DGX800 between the wife and I. Great lights.
