Just a thought to those of you who say that paralex only becomes a problem above X power. Now, I am not arguing with you, but....my belief is that there is just as much paralex at 4x as 32x. It's just not nearly as noticeable at lower powers. If you have 3/4 MOA deflection at 32x, there is 3/4 MOA at 4X also. It's just harder to decipher a 3/4 MOA deflection at 4X at XXX yards. I have done some "tests" (for a lack of a better term) with the target having lines every 1/2 moa. I purposely set my paralex out of wack and did the "move the head around to the edge of the FOV" thing at 32, 24, 16, and 8x. From what I could tell it was all the same. Just not as noticeable at the lower powers. One thing is clear though. As far as focus only (not paralex), the target is a lot clearer at the lower powers. But, I also noticed that no matter what power scope you use, that is the case. A 3.5 - 10 will be a clearer at 3.5 power, but so will a 12-42 be clearer at 12 power.
I could be wrong (again), but that is what my limited test showed me. And it isn't very scientific.
