I don't know how the crosshairs would turn pink or fade. My PH 4-16x50 has an etched reticle,and has served me well for many years.
The scopes with etched crosshairs are like the Conquest's. They don't fade.
Scopes like the Leupolds I have fade to pink when pointed towards sunlight.
So does the Swarovski Z3 I have. Mine is a regular (40mm) 3-9X scope.
I got it because I wanted to show off the 'Swaro' name on a really fine rifle I have. If I had to do it over I would have bought a Kahles.
The rifle was very accurate with a Leu. on it and it continues to shoot well with the swaro on it.
