I have wondered about it also. My thought is that 'way back when' the coldlight had some advantages over the NON-Dichoric heads.

With the advent of Dichoric heads, the coldlight does not compare so favorably. When you think about it dichroic filters are a pretty amazing concept. Heat and fade proof. Some people don't realize what a near-perfect light source they can make.
