Busch & Muller Luxos and Lumotec Cyo Comparison

This may or may not be what you were thinking.  The Luxos from B&M is the hot new light on the market this summer, and for good reason.  Higher output, wider beam, and remote switching and USB charger on the Luxos U what is not to like?  There have been plenty of posts and videos on other sites comparing the beam shots of these as well as others.  The one thing everybody mentions is that the Luxos is significantly larger than the B&M Cyo.  While I was shooting some product photos today it crossed my mind that I had both lights in the workshop, and should makes some comparison shots.

Dimensional Differences for mounting considerations:

I have a couple extra of the Luxos B and U in stock and will be adding them to the storefront later this week.

    Thanks — I’m building a rack for a friend who may be using one of these lights. These dimensions will come in handy to ensure that I properly size the light mount to accommodate a Luxos.
