Is the aluminum cover a heat sink ?

Had one for about a year. Very bright, good beam patter, seems
waterproof. Has DLR which powers the rear light, senso, standlicht,
usual B+M quality at a price.

The 70lux IQ-XS is the new one.

It does look strikingly similar to the new (and cheaper) 60lux, no-lens
Herrmans...
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272905413444

The beam, judging from the bumm site's 70 lux photo, looks pretty awful.

Nice metal bracket though, not as likely to break as the original IQ-X's
plastic one.

B&M makes the 100 lux version, why bother with a 70 lux?

Good beam pictures from Peter White, although limited to the products he
carries understandably enough. The 100 lub B&M uses the same reflector
and LED as the Schmid eDelux II:

Simply because I was suspecting James might have confused the two.

(The 70 lux lamp looks cheaper to build. AAND more cuter, but they'll have
to have to add glitter, hot pink and champagne anodized options.)

The IQ-X sure uses a different reflector and LED than used in both the
Cyo-Premium & eDelux-II.

He even has an extra b&m-hl page, but for quite a while has not displayed
new beam photography of his own.

B&M plays the lux only racket. But their lights are poor lumens/lux ratio. Lux only says the intensity at the brightest point anywhere in the beam. No mention if this is STVZO or not. Best guess is that it isn't. My STVZO working concept is more efficient than any STVZO beam currently on the market. It would need 18 watts for 100lux STVZO, and even that would probably not be able to stay under 2 lux on the horizon. ~65 lux at ~9 watts making 650+ lumens is about the ceiling for a single LED STVZO compliant light.

I hate to disappoint, but that bracket is plastic.

You guessed wrong, Barry. I would be exceedingly surprised to discover that any BUMM lamp is not StVZO compliant. That is BUMM's USP or unique selling point and has always been. It is precisely this StVZO compliance that makes their lamps inferior to yours in output and superior to yours in beam shaping.
