Well transitions lenses not only acts as sunglass, it provide our eyes from harmful sunlight (UV rays) cos the lens is cover with UV blockage coating. A pair cost around $299 cheaper than getting a pairs of camera lens.

Did mine about 3 yrs back cost $100++ and with the frames totalled $300++. Damn good lenses. Darkens according to the light density as well. If sun super bright, it will become very dark.

Cheers....

got mine for free from AXN contest :p only top up $60 for a better frame. Not bad, turns dark when i'm outdoors, i think it depends on the UV level for the darkness.

Not suitable if you are driving. It will react only to UV ray not bright light.

Agree lah... the first week i got it, i was wondering why my camera machiam spoil like dat....hardly see a thing in the viewfinder or the lcd... later realise it is because of my lens....transition lens.

But not bad lah, quite nice to have when driving because convenient...dun need to leave sunglass in car.

Got mine at Pearl's Optics at Chinatown for S$220+ including frame. Use it everyday and saves me the trouble of having to bring my sunglasses along.

if u have a high degree or high astig, forget it.

its very thick.
i thought the lens will be thinner even though if you have a high degree, thats what the guy told me IIRC, and the lens are shatter resistant. Probably there are a few grades of transitions lens.
