The newly developed high-intensity 50W halogen light source is brighter than a conventional 100W halogen lamp. Low power consumption means less heat generation, thereby reducing the chance of heat-induced focus drift.

Why is 50W brighter than 100W
Brightness is not determined by wattage. Nikon's new light source achieves greater brightness by optimizing the lamp filament size and improving pupil illumination fulfillment by optically expanding the size of the light source. This has resulted in a 50W light source that is brighter than a 100W lamp–about 40% brighter with diascopic illumination*.
