I'm looking at the 4-12X50 Swaro Z3 and just realized it did't have a side focus. Most would agree that it has a little better glass than the Conquest 4.5-14X50, but would the Conquest be a better choice for longer range because of the side focus???Loco  When does no adjustment become an issue?

Most parralex [side focus] does not become an issue till you go past 8X-10X.What are the distances you will be shooting?
 
Glass will always trump magnification ,just my opion.That being said I would go with the Swaro.

agreed,  don't think you'll need the side focus

I'm going to be putting it on my new 300 Weatherby Accumark.  Most of the time this rifle will be used for western hunting.  I'm very confident out to 500 in most hunting situations, so I figure 500 to 600 yards max.
