Does anywone have the same "hard too turn" problem as me with the parallax ajustment knob on the new 6-24x50 MDCM? and some fuzzy glass ?

I have just had the scope for one day, when i found out that the dress ring/outer ring on the 50 mm lense was loose, i found out by mounting the sunshade on the scope an when turn of the dress ring came loose. so i sent the brand new scope to the dealer in Germany, and they send the scope too Sightron for repairs. After 2 mounth i got the scope back an was happy too have the scope back an wanted too put it too use on my gun.
I got 2 problems with the scope:

1. parallax ajustment: The parallax knob i very hard too turn, so hard that
it is a problem too use with normal fingerforce, and a hard struggle too use
under shooting competition ( fieldtarget shooting from 50 too 350 meters on
siluette targets ) The parallax ajustment-range is very close, and after the
5. mark ( out of 10 ) on the knob, the focus dosent react too different
distances, that will mean in real life, that after 1000 meters, the
parallax/focus dosent change at all while turning the parallax knob i wont
clear the picture more than too 1000 this the way the scopes was
meant too work ?? half of the knobs turnability has no effect on the picture

2. The clarity of the glass gives me doubt about the scopes function is
correct !!( internal ajustment/lense failure ). The glass/picture is very
fuzzy, especially when the zoome is past 16, the egde clarity is not "ok"
from what i have read on the internet time and time again, Sightron scopes are
praised too have clarity egde too edge....but not my scope. When compared
too my old Baush and Lomb 6-24x42 with dirty lenses, 25 years old, the
Sightron falls behind in a optic chart test !! Yes this is right ! I have
used the charts-test found on the 6mm BR website.
In bright light conditions the Sightron looks too bright, and has a blue
halo around black letters/numbers on white background , high zoome ratio
16-24 ??

Im am not trying too be a pain in the xxxx but after receiving the scope, i
think theres a lot too wish for in my scopes case. Can it be true that an
old scope from B & L thats 25 years old can win a comparrison test over your
Slll flagship, i hope not. Maybe i have a bad lemon-scope, but what do i do
about it ??

I have made the optical test for the scope because i wanted
testresults....and not feel/think results

I have had almost every scope on this planet, and diddent espect a Swarovski
og Zeiss....i expected the Slll glass quality too better than the Bushnell
6500/4200 series, but my results says not better, but insted a little weaker
than the Bushnells ! And this was a big disapointment.

Does anyone have similar problems ?
