"My experence"... when I'm in the field, and I see something with my bins, lets say near a white rock out far, and I want a better view, with my STRAIGHT
scope, a Pentax 20x60-80mm, it has a built in open gun sight on it, and I aim that sight at the white rock, and look in the little glass window - and there it is in the scope - just focus, and adjust power.
I could NEVER do that when I had the angled version - I was constantly sweeping the area to find the subject.
Even at 100 yds at the range, it was a task to find the targets I was shooting at with the angled scope.
Now, ol' AJ, he's a unique case - cus he's lookin' "up" instead of straight ahead... so he sets his scope so he looks down, to see up - probably shooting squirrels out of trees ;)
