Zeiss Conquest no parallax number on knob?

Just received my new Zeiss Conquest but noticed it had no yardage numbers on the parallax knob on the left side? Is this right? it starts with a 30 and has 10 hash marks and ends with the infinity....

Yardage marks are actually pretty useless on a parallax knob. Just get set up and adjust until parallax is eliminated.

I have a mark 4 , and I just located ranges in the field and marked my knob w/ tape. So if I am in timber and expect a 100 yrs shot I know where to set it. If I am speed goat hunting I roll at 400 and adjust as needed

Geez, you think they would at least give you a general point of reference instead of just a line..... Didn't Zeiss mark the knobs with number on older models?

Numbers do not help. You need to adjust until the parallax is gone. Here is a link to an thread that might help.

What Is Parallax And How To Adjust For It?

Re: Zeiss Conquest no parallax number on knob?

I have a 4.5-14x44 rapid z 800. I agree its an issue that the parallax dial has labels for the 30 yd and infinity marks but in between are 10 marks with no labels. It's not a big problem when I have time to focus, but sometimes I want to be able to quickly dial in a known distance- its aggravating. All my other scopes with parallax adjustment have labeled adjustments

The older ones did have 100yd increment references. The new ones just have unmarked lines.
