From what I have seen, I think S&B zenith has the best illumination on the market of hunting scopes. The FlashDot technology, so when illumination is off there just is a plain cross like a non-illuminated scope. Not a floating dot in the centre. I know Meopta Meostar has a floating dot in the centre when the illumination is off. And that makes me want to not buy it.
So, before I just stick to S&B - do you know any other brand that makes illumination like the FlashDot? NO floating black dot in the reticle when illumination is off.
