Some awesome comparison shots!
Who says the 589 wasn't tuned down? Please go read the pictures descriptions and you will see that they were both more or less at the same output. The color difference isn't all that much but is there.
Can you tune down the III-C? I'm lost here..
I also note that the 593.5/594s tend to have a wider beam diameter than the 589s
Yeah, there's an aperture shutter in the front that you can block out some of the light. It makes the spot look somewhat like a multimode spot though...

Its a nice laser and all but...
At just 8mW ....
Its a bit like telling your friends at the pub.
You know.... I got a horse.
But when you take them out to see it.
All you have is an asthmatic bangladeshi donkey who has been in one too many arabic pornos?
To a non expert eye that mainly relies on a wow factor you are compleately core t the laser won't be too much of a surprise to your friends. Obviously to the expert eyes that know the difficulty in having a portable 594nm laser it would be like a diamond, it is small but valuable.
It's not a 3w blue that is for sure, but than again it would be more or less like showing a Swarovski or a diamond to a peasent that has no knowledge of what is one or the other, he will like the Swarovski better, as they say ignorance is a bliss.
I understand why people want to collect color of exotic colors , such as the 638 ,589 and 473.
Don't take this the wrong way , its a VERY nice color.
But I never understood why would people want a laser that can't even lit up the sky.
To me , its kind of like understanding why women like SUPER TINY purses,tiny dogs and tiny phones :undecided:
I won't hesitate at anytime to chose 5mW unique wl over few watts of common wl. I've been on this hobby for 6 years and owned over 100 lasers but I found that high power lasers are no fun at all.
