Yes it can be interchanged. The problem is the case itself, it will crack where the mount slots into it.

Maybe one day I'll get around to take a shot of the typical damage, a friend of mine has some heavily (ab)used D-Lites that have the typical cracks.

The new D-Lite it are a lot better.

Intended useage would be an important consideration for sure. For my use and setting the plastic bodies are fine. If I was making my living with these lights and they were getting knocked around quite a bit I would be investing in something up-amored.


Tools: I like things with real dials and knobs.

Thanks for all the great suggestions and comments. The only problem is that there does not seem to be a clear winner ;-)a
So time to weigh the options and pick one. Leaning towards the 500 / 500 BXRI but the comment from TMR Designs has me thinking about a combination 500BXRI and lower power 250BXRI or 200 D-Lite-it.
But just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the great info! The POTNers come through again!!

I don't think this particular D-Lite was smashed or something. It's just their weak spot. With the -it being only very little much more, there's no reason to buy non-its anymore.
