Hello all,
 
I recently purchased a Nikon Monarch 2.5-10x50... my first scope with SF, and I'm a little concerned that there might be a problem with the side focus... How dramatic of a change should I notice when using the side focus, from even the extremes, 50yards - infinity?  I'm not really able to notice much of a difference at all, and I'm wondering if the SF is possibly broken.
 
Thanks for any info.

If it focuses, It's fine. If you can't get it to focus there's a problem.
It is also a Parallax correction system. To check this you need to set up targets at varying distances, and look through the scope, tilt your head from side to side, and adjust until the cross hairs no longer move from center of target.
If these things are working then there is no problem.
Welcome to the OT.

when you are adjusting the SF does the reticle appear to blur a little when looking at the target or vice versa? Test this at 50 yards and you should notice more eye strain/bluring.
