    I have a 3.5-15x50mm and 5.5-22x56. I recently bought a new 2.5-10x32 compact and the magnification driection is reversed. Instead of turning clockwise like the 3.5 and 5.5, the 2.5 you turn counter clockwise to increase magnificaton.

    Also, after a while I liked how the whole ocular bell turned on the 3.5 and 5.5. On the 2.5 only the power ring turns.

    Why would Nightforce change the magnificaton direction?
