I got the gold sensor mirror for xmas this year, and I can honestly say it's one of the most useful pieces of gear I've received. It helps SO much on stormy cloudy days.
However, it is NOT a good lens for mixed conditions, because it lets in a lot of light. If there's a sun break, I'll be squinting hard for a while before my eyes can adjust a bit. But that's what my rose/copper is for.
And you know what, Henrik? Fuckin' send it, son.
