That's easy: SureFire M1 and ELR/ELR-VF (variable focus)

Apples and oranges :) M1 is very good for CQB, but does not really have much range. The ELR is awesome for long range, but can not be used up close (too bright). The ELR-VF is the best of both worlds: it is ok with short range, and even better then the ELR for long range.
