Hensel Expert D500

I am thinking of purchasing two of these studio lamps. Does anyone here have long-term experience of them they're willing to share?

I have the predecessor for about 15 years now, the Contra 500ís. Very reliable, looks a bit oldfashioned now, built to last and great light output. German quality level. I suppose youíll get at least similar experience with the Expert 500.

Also great dealership Goutier & Peters in the city of Malden.

Regards,
Jaap.

Thank you, Jaap.

Goutier & Peters are no longer Hensel official dealers (it would have been really convenient if they still were, as they are (were?) about 10 minutes from where I live). The new dealership is in Cuijk, also not so far away. Hensel Studiotechniek

I have had the much more pedestrian Integras for almost 10 years now without any problems. I bought them used back then, so I have no idea how old they actually are. I have never had any issue with them whatsoever.
