I ordered the 3-15x42. The fast focus eye piece was a little loose causing the reticle to shift. It also wouldn't focus above 9x. CS was great and sent me a new one after confirming the one I sent was indeed defective. The replacement I received is far worse than the first. The ocular is so loose it rattles. I didn't even bother checking the focus. I'm sure Minox is a great company, but their first attempt at scopes needs work. By next year they will have ironed out the bugs and I'll try again. Just FYI for anyone interested.

wow, that sucks to hear.  i was looking into ordering their 2-10x40 scope, i may have to rethink that order.  I guess their product isnt up to par with their prices.  as stated, it is their first year and trial run of scopes, hopefully next year will be kinder to them with some "go time" under their belts.

I have 2 ZA5 3x15x50's on the way now. Someone said they were great scopes, hopefully they will be or its back to Zeiss , er?....
 Its funny, I have Zeiss. Swaro's, 2 Kahles, Blaw Blaw Blaw....I HAD before the lense got so scratched I could barely see through it,  A cheap Burris Fullfield 3x9x40 many many years that did everything it was supposed to do. It helped kill alot of game .. I hear lots of people bad mouthing these scopes...I really never had one problem with it, other than not taking care of it...
   Anyway I just hope the Minox works out, This news is a pisser!! Sorry to hear Jetwrench dude.!!
