If there are any optics experts willing to share an opinion, I have a question

for them to ponder.  I recently purchased a 10x42 SS rear focus scope.  I have

owned a Sightron S2 variable with front focus.  After mounting the SS, I did

some comparing of images, which lead me to an interesting conclusion.  Maybe

my eyes are off, but the S2 appears to have a brighter, sharper image and the

FOV on 10 pwr seems to bring targets closer than the 10 pwr of the SS.

 

1.  I've read the posts on 30mm vs 1" and I am drawn to the conclusion if the size

of the tube does not increase light transmissio then it must be the quality of glass in

the S2 is better?

 

2.  Why is it then the FOV at any range appears to be more narrow in the S2 than the SS. 

It's as if the one mfg is lying about the actual magnification power in the optic.

 

Anyone got any ideas?

I have used both scopes and I agree the Sightron is damn good glass for the money.

It could be there is some tolerance that is off on one of the two scopes. One way to check this would be look at an object of a know distance (and known size) and compare mil readings between the two. If there is a significant difference this will indicate which one is off.
