Not to say I don't believe you but from observation of reviews there is a lot of subjectivity going on. I've heard it said here and other forums and reviews that the Action has the better optics and also that the Action Extreme has better optics? It might be quite likely that sample variation has more to do with this than any real differences in optical build. Just sayin...
Beneath the civilized veneer, man remains the supreme predator. Cursed with what he believes is understanding, his true soul blossoms godlike in the heart of the nuclear inferno.
