No - I have not looked through a NF and SIII side by side. Everything I'm typing now has already been typed and explained in prior posts.
For the record and for the 3rd time - I do not own a NF. I've explained this several times because you've asked the same questions several times. I did not compare a NF in the field side-by-side to my Sightron SIII. I compared the SIII side by side to my IOR, Zeiss Conquest, Leupold LPS, Leupold VX-3. I have stated my opinion that IOR glass is equal or better than NF glass. The SIII was the equal of the IOR glass in my field comparison. If you believe IOR glass is as good or better than NF glass, then logic allows for the deduction that the SIII glass is equal to or better than NF glass. That's the explanation - simple as that. It wasn't based on pixie dust. You may or may not reach the same conclusion. If you believe NF glass is better than IOR glass, then my field comparison and logic doesn't allow you to reach the same conclusion I do.
Now, have you compared Sightron SIII to NF? Have you compared SIII to any other brand of scope?. I understand your point but it cuts both ways. Do you understand my point? Let me ask you over and over and over again. Have you compared a Sightron SIII to any other brand of scope? You've never answered that question. If you've never layed eyes on a SIII, let alone performed any field comparison to any other scopes, the basis for your contentions would appear to be less supported than mine.
