    Hi all,

    I am going to pick up a pair of Minutes 2.0 but I really don't know what lenses to get. The choices are:

    VR28 Black Iridium lens
    Gold Iridium lens
    Tungsten Iridium lens
    G30 Black Iridium lens

    All in a polished black frame. Which would be best as a general use tint for walking/driving in the UK? I already have a pair of fives squared with a grey lense. I quite like the look of the G30 but will my eyes show through at 25% light transmission?

    Thanks

    Personally I LOVE the VR28 Black Iridium for driving anywhere and I do a lot of it.

    Cool, do your eyes show through them at all? Do they have a red tint kind of? I'm having a hard time finding some decent pics!
    It's probably between the G30 black iridium(25% light transmission) and VR28 black iridium(18% light transmission).

    Another vote for VR28 Black Iridium. It's such a versatile lens color, great on cloudy days but still dark enough for bright sunny days as well. It does have a rose color to it, which some folks don't like, personally it's one of my favorite lens colors(I have it for a good majority of my glasses). They will go great with your black frame and no, you will not be able to see your eyes when wearing them.

    Agreed you do not see your eyes through the lenses.

    VR28 Black Iridium by a landslide. They make the sky bluer and just makes everything more vibrant. Too bad they do not make these lens on Radars, or Flaks.

    Thanks everyone. The VR28 Black Iridium Minute 2.0 turned up yesterday - they look great, really pleased with them. Got 3 pairs of Oakley sunglasses in my collection now!

    VR28 is generally referred to as the best "all around lens"
