When I went to my local welding shop to refill the tank for my MIG welder,
I found that they had the auto darkening helmets, complete, for $140. 
The guy there said that the prices have come down substantially in the 
last year or so.  Also, he said that he thought that the auto darkening
lenses where just a bit lighter than their rated values and recommended
and 11 in place of a 10.

I am hoping to use mine a bit this weekend and will post my reactions
to the unit.
