Re: Zeiss Diavari V 6-24x56T*?
I have had the chance to look through one mounted on a sako 270 wsm but not really used it. Nice and clear optics, nice but somehow big turrets; if I recall correctly parallax adjustmnent started at some 20-30 m up to infinity.I think it allows for 1/20 mil adjustment per click, at least in the elevation turret.
But the bigest drawback i see, at least for my taste, is that it has a 2nd focal plane reticle. If you want a mil dot reticle it is because you plan to use it for ranging or holdover/under without cliking on the turrets; and for this it makes sense to be able to use the reticle at any magnification without the need to make different calculations, as would happen in a 2nd plane reticle, depending on the power factor you are using.
Since it is not a cheap scope, I´d take a serious look at the S & B PM II line. Swarovsky also makes a 6-24, but that is with the TDS reticle ( which I am not a fan of) and besides, don´t know if it is in FFP or 2 FP-
Illumination...... do you really think you´ll use that a lot ???
