- An improvement
The plastic Surefire I already had employs a different switch ( tighten the tail cap and it comes on . Press button with loose cap for momentary use .
This light is off even with the tailcap tightened . The button controls both constant and momentary modes . The loosened tail cap acts as a safety ; to accidentally turn on the light, you'd have to tighten the tail cap and push the button . This is a much safer system for a light that can get hot in use .
The metal body is thinner . The light is brighter .
Now I need to give my plastic one to someone .
I like having the best but must point out that a Mini Maglite LED 2 AA cell light is fine for walking a dog and most other situations , so those on a budget may be able to do without a Surefire . Of course, if you need to fire a pistol, discombumerate at attacker or find your way out of a burning building, you want a Surefire of one model or another .

- Best One Yet
The L4 is my 3rd SureFire light. I also have a 6PX Pro and an M951. Of the three, the L4 is my favorite. I purchased it to go with my CCW for EDC. It is bright, unobtrusive, and easy to conceal. I spent some time shooting with it this weekend and it is much more comfortable to to use than the 6PX. It may have been my best purchase this year.

- Great Wider Beam
I really like the fact that the L4 has a wider beam than some of my other surefire lights. I carry this in my car at all times. I've also taken it camping with me. The long lasting battery is a plus. I rarely change out batteries. Great size too.

The L4 LumaMax is a terrific flashlight! It perfectly satisfied my need for a compact but very bright flashlight. It is more powerful and more effective than other manufacturer's flashlights several times its size. It's quality is typical Surefire!!
