Does an adjustable objective scope focus both the reticle and the object being viewed, or will it still have a lock ring-adjustable eyepiece set up for focusing the reticle?

The AO just focuses the scope for distance to eliminate parallax at that distance ....( like focusing a camera lens...)  The scope still has a reticle focuser at the other end....YOUR end...

Thanks .... I'm deciding whether or not to try an AO scope for the first time and realized I don't know much about them.

  What type of hunting and/or shooting will you be doing?  Distances?
