Spoke with Greg at Minox about the defective scope I received. In doing so I found out they just received some new models. I have the 3-15x42 BDC. They now have a 3-15x50 BDC SF. For hunting coyotes is there any real advantage to the side (parallax) adjustable scope? I kinda wanted the marginal gain of the 50mm objective for better resolving of small objects. They also have a 2-10x50 FF.

Going to the 50 mm will make it a little brighter image in low light at 7x and higher.
Personally I would give up one on the low end to get 5 on the high end but that is because i usually hunt from a fixed position. 3x is plenty low enough to get onto a coyote.   I also like a side focus scope and you can set the focus at approximately the distance you expect to see game.

Thanks! They also have new reticles available. German #4 and a BDC with more holdover lines. I can't imagine I would need more than are on the standard BDC unless they're closer together. I think the 3-15x50 SF BDC is lookin' pretty good. Minox CS seems pretty good so far.

Jet - a 50mm bell is pretty big if you are going to be hoofing long distances, particularly in the bush. You might want to be extra sure that you really need the few extra minutes at dawn/dusk. As for me, imho I would not put a 50mm bell on a rifle I intend to walk with. The 50mm+ bells I have are all for target shooting only.
