Thanks for posting this question.
A couple comments:
- Replacement LED lenses are very inexpensive, a lot cheaper than separate lamps.
- Fixtures or modules that have switchable or dimmable brightness give you options that don't require lamp replacement.
Let's focus this thread on what designers want and need, rather than sponsor promotions (myself included).
Lighting designers are artists who paint with light. Tell us whether or not you need flexibility from your tools - what kind of flexibility, and how much? Also, do you need this flexibility after installation?
