Just a word of warning here, the subject that started this thread in the first place is about a weld spattered lens. Auto-dark or conventional glass lens, these lens should NEVER be used if spattered, pitted or deeply scratched since with these it is possible to get UV exposure and not even know it. Obviously the lens that is the subject here is wisely being replaced, as well it should be, but I have known welders (weldors?) to use a damaged lens and not even think about it since there is no immediate discomfort. This can be a big mistake because low level exposure to UV rays due to a damaged lens can be cumulative and cause eye damage over time. Far more to be concerned about with what condition your hood is in rather than what type it is.
