Okay I dug around with the search tool, couldn't find a thread quite like what I needed so I'll ask. Opinions on the Chrome Iridium? I know the general consensus is pretty much that this is an incredible lens to look at (although I've heard complaints about scratching and smudges that's any high iridium coating-Fire, 24K) but maybe not the greatest to look through? I'm maybe most interested in opinions what its like to look through but most importantly on its transmission rate or glare reduction qualities. I know the rating 12% but I've read things that suggest it doesn't perform like a 12% but rather a higher transmission rate lens-like more of a 16% even 17% As an aside, any thoughts on this lens in the Polished Clear Fuel Cell? I'm considering purchasing a standard combo of that and some Violet lenses to switch in and out; I'm also considering Chrome in Distressed Silver Jury if I like the fit/look of the Ice pair I just ordered.
