It matters because the Leupold MK4 8.5-25 has a FOV of 11.2'@100yds @8.5x
The Sightron SIII LRMDCM 6-24 has a FOV of 16.1'@100yds @6x
The Nightforce NXS 5.5-22 has a FOV of 17.5'@100yds @5.5x
The Sightron SIII LRMDCM 8-32 has a FOV of 12.2'@100yds @8x
The Mk4 falls pretty short in my opinion, in this area.
I use my scope for long range hunting, but still like to have some effectiveness at close range if the opportunity arises. Once again, Im not saying the Mk4 is a bad scope, but its not the "be all, to end all". For the cost of the Mk4 I really think they could use an update, including 4-5x magnification, and maybe even a zero stop. And the NXS, well, I have stated multiple times that I would never spend the money on a new one, they simply don't impress me the way a scope with that price tag should, used and discounted, maybe. But their glass is just not up to par with their price tag. I like my sightron for what it cost me. It could use firmer turrets and a zero stop, but hey you cant win them all.
