VZ feenom are also good for medium faces, but not as wide angle as the Dragon rogue...plus, the lenses aren't as HQ as Dragon
Interesting...i was also considering the Rogue as well given its decent price point. However, I haven't heard much in the way of their quality of lenses. Im surprised you see them as that high quality. The issue is most of the rogue's ive seen w/ 2 lenses start to get fairly pricey.

Ha...you know after I posted my thread i searched up Spy...and the marshall caught my eye....hrm...
Based on current DF prices:
Marshalls w/ extra persimmons is $103
Skylab w/ 2 lenses is $95
Rogues w/ 2 lenses is $128

Again...just based on lens quality and durability...is there a difference between these 3 companies? Am I just selecting totally based on fit and style...or is there a marked difference in lens quality? Spy's website actually says something abt carl zeiss optics...

thanks for all the responses...keep em coming!
