I understand what you are saying.

How far away was the object you were looking at?  If the object was significantly closer than the factory parallax setting (100m), then that was probably what you were seeing (you weren't within the scope's DOF).  If you were seeing a blurry image at around the factory parallax setting, then there was a problem with the scope, and PA would be unlikely to help.

Parallax adjustment is not essential on a big game hunting scope, even at 15x, IMO.  Now for rimfire, that is a different story.

hi matt the object we were viewing was around 130 yards at the end off the hall...we shoot mostly small targets over this neck off the woods from short to long ranges...so parallax on higher mags is a must.Howdy

There is certainly a benefit in PA for shooting close ranges.

I am now certain that the scope you saw was defective, which is disappointing, because it is the first Meopta scope of any type I have heard of any trouble with.  Perhaps it was a prototype.

If you weren't seeing high resolution at 130 yards, the parallax correction of the scope is set for that distance (nearly), and so PA wouldn't help, if the scope was properly functioning.

I hope you get a chance to look at a proper sample.  The one I saw was tack sharp and contrasty at 15x.

Bitterroot, I think you nailed it.  I especially agree with this:  "Parallax adjustment is not essential on a big game hunting scope, even at 15x, IMO.

hi matt in my experience PA..helps at all ranges from short to long.reminds me at the range not long back shooting at 100 metres a friend had a burris six 2-12x50 no PA..i had a weaver tactical 3-15x50 with PA we were shooting used 12 gauge shotgun shells AT 100 metres..the burris was usable two around 10 mag  the weaver set at 15 mag using the PA was pin sharp  all my scopes have PA would not be without it.. def a must for old eyes. it may not be a priority for shooting big game..but we don't do that here so it's irrelevant

thanks for clarifying, verminator.

I see now you use PA primarily to focus the image, and not to remove parallax error.

I called Meopta USA last week asking when the R2 1.7-10X42 would be available. They genuinely had no clue that model even existed. From their reaction I'm guessing much later this year rather than sooner.

Hi,

All Meopta scopes, whether MeoStar, MeoPro or Artemis are factory pre-set to be parallax free at 100m.

All of the scopes also have a fast-focus eyepiece to exactly account for the varying distances when changing magnification. Because it was designed as big game hunting scope (and slo quite importantly, to fit a certain price-range), the R2 2.5-15x56 does not have side-focus parallax.

In fact the top-selling MeoStar R1 / R1r 3-12x56 does not have side focus parallax either and we have never had issues with blurry images at extended distances.

The MeoStar R2 2.5-15x56 at the British Shooting Show this past weekend was not a prototype (I know because I brought it to the show and had it tested 3x before releasing to packaging) and thus far with the limited production we have had, have not had any quality issues whatsoever.

Admittedly, this scope is not a perfect fit for the UK Air Gun market, but in all honesty, it was not designed for those specific needs and requirements.

Our MeoStar R1 4-16x44, MeoPro 6-18x50 or ZD 4-16x44 / 6-24x56 make much better choices for Air Gun setups due to the front objective or side-parallax adjustments available.

Also, the MeoStar R2 1.7-10x42 and R2 2-12x50 will be officially launched at the upcoming IWA exhibition in Germany.

spot on we shoot mainly small targets here in the uk  PA comes in handy on higher mags. also with a nv mono on the back this works a treat with a good  pa scopeExcellent..cant think off any other scope with 15 mag that does not have PA...if that scope had PA you would have had 3 orders it was very sharp on the lower mags...

Do you have any approximate dates on launching these two scopes here in the US?

Roughly expected to be in stores prior to the fall hunting season, so July-August.

The MeoStar R2 series of scopes do not have parallax adjustment.

Will the R2 line replace the R1 line or will it be an addition to the lineup.

The MeoStar R2 will be in addition to the MeoStar R1 series of riflescopes, not a replacement.

Since this was last weekend, can you post some pics of the two scopes? I'm interested in the 2-12x50.
