I was calling about the 711 and found out the 720 is replacing it. All I know for sure is that it is brighter, 2200 compared to 1600. I was just about to get the 711 when I find this out. Could he be saying this because he has no more 711xu's but is getting the 720 in June? I wonder. Any info on the 720 would be apreciated. He says he will be selling it at the same price he is selling the 711xu (which is still $500 more then the lowest quote I got for the 711 from another dealer to give you an idea of pricing). Just when you think you have it all figured out.
