We have been successfully dispensing the Essilor Ideal Advanced as our entry-level PAL, and the Varilux X as our top-tier lens, for years. A new HOYA rep has offered aggressive pricing on "Hoya ID Lifestyle3" and "Hoya ID Mystyle2" PALs, but being unfamiliar with HOYA products, I have no point of reference. I'm 39 and not yet in a PAL myself, so I appreciate other folks' impressions of these lenses.

*if* these HOYA lenses are similar in softness, low non-adapt rates, etc, we can save a bunch of money by switching. If it turns out they're even better than what we've been using, then win-win.
