Here is my Gold.
They look great in person..very colorful not strictly gold so they definitely have a prism effect going on.
They don't have the extra dark in the center / lighter color on the sides like the old prizm lenses had.
The base lens is a lighter blue tint, not smoke or very dark at all. The overall effect is decently tinted, but definitely not the extra-dark feel of the old prism lenses.
This will probably be an advantage most of the time, but I loved my prism lenses on extreme bright and hot days... I would have liked to see one of the new prism lenses have a dark base color.
I won't know until I get some good field time in whether or not I will keep some chrome prism's around for the brightest of days or not.
