guess my eyes really suck. I have the 12-42. I had a 8.5-25 leupy and had a hard time seeing 2 foot target at 1k. I like the bigger scopes because you can always turn it down but with the 22 you can never go up. The real adv to the 5.5-22( 100+moa) in my opinion is the elevation, the 8-32(65moa) & & 12-42(45moa)
Perhaps your eyes suck or perhaps your brain sucks. If you read the instructions and got the eyepiece focused properly and still have a problem then it is your eyes (just like my daughter whose prescription does not totally cure her vision problems). If you failed to read the instructions and focus the eyepiece then it is your brain does not have many functioning neurons.

Sounds more like A**hole to me or just my eyes reading it wrong. I would imagine being a nightforce master dealer Ive set up a few in my day. Now I remember why I hate forums.
