Meade 5000 Pl 14mm and other EP choices

I just ordered my first Binoviewer Friday (The Dink II with duel arm X switch). Looking for good planetary eyepiece of 14mm under $100 each. Saw the new Meade 5000 Pl 14 add and was wondering if anyone has tried any of these or others in the line. All opinions welcome. While I'm at it I should also ask about the 14mm Orion Lanthanum. The reviews I have seen indicate they are sharp and contrasty but do not transmit as much light as other designs Wondering if the extra light lost would be critical in a binoviewer since the image brightness is reduced anyway. I have a 24 Pan to match the one I already own and a pair of 16 Konigs coming.
thanks,
David
