Brand new to the board and figured this was the best place to ask this question. 

Anyone out there have any experience with the new model Redfield Illuminators, particularly the 3-9x42?  Specifically light-gathering and how it compares to the Nikon Monarch, Leupold Vari-X II's, and Burris Signature.  I have one of each of these other three and wondered if the Illuminator was any better or worse since it seems to be Redfield's top-of-the-line scope and is priced accordingly.

Thanks

The new Redfields are a lower end product.  Old ones=great, new ones=crap.
