Whats the difference in brightness between a fluorescent bulb, a LED bulb and a traditional 60w filament bulb?

Well in simple terms bulb brightness is measured in lumens. Lumens (denoted by lm) are a measure of the total amount of visible light (to the human eye) from a bulb or light source.

As a comparison this fluorescent bulb is 1820lm, a LED bulb of the same length is 2130lm and a traditional 60w filament bulb is 800lm.
