    Depends on your intended use of it. İ have 5 Swarovskis. Only one is illuminated, a 6-24x50 PVİ. İ had the illuminated reticule on this as İ shoot a few foxes at night somewhere where İ do not wish to lamp.İt is useful, but in reality gets me only a few shots İ couldn't have taken with a standard Swarovski scope with a bold enough reticule. İ do like it and would buy another, if money was no object.

    Where I stalk the deer are often very late appearing on the scene and light fading fast. I recently changed my scope from a Schmidt & Bender non - illuminated scope to a Swarovski Z4i.
    The illuminated reticule gives me around 15 minutes more stalking than before. However as the deer are more likely to appear at this time I greatly value the illuminated reticule.The brightness of the dot can be dimmed until it is a mere pin ***** and I am very pleased. Hope that this is of some value in your deliberations

    I have a Z6i 3-18x50 and would not be without the illumination now.
    Just makes target acquisition quicker and easier.
    Seems to concentrate the eye to the target area better.

    I also use the 3-18-50 z6i and agree with the above and am glad I paid the extra for the illumination.
