I tried zeal's photochromic and couldn't tell any difference, even when I did all the crap in their videos to test them out.

As far as the annoying reflections, I have that on my dragon lenses and you don't even notice it on the mtn when you're looking at anything past a couple of feet away. afaik, that reflection is what gives higher definition in flatter light

interesting point extra0, that may be the case, I could try them out on the beach here to see! But seriously that sounds like it should be fine on the snow.

Are you suggesting that photochromatic lenses change light transmission based on temperature?
