The eyebox is definitely tight and there's definitely edge distortion. I thought the center resolution and usable low magnification made up for it, since I saw it as more of an SPR kinda thing, considering the price point. What do you think outclasses it at similar or lower price points? What do you mean by finicky parallax?Apparently you haven’t looked through one. Very finicky Eyebox and parallax, significant edge distortion, mushy turrets. What I did like - center resolution was impressive, reticles and illumination. I agree, it is a “neat” scope, but it just does not compete with other scopes at its price point and even less for the above mentioned parameters.
