Slop. Imprecise adjustment. Notchiness. Slackness.

I could go on but sure you get the picture?

Alpha was a superbin now a hyperbin.

The puny FOV wannabes litter the wayside as carnage decimated by corners cut; almost nearly, yet not quite hardly.

You guys have lost me so good to know my Night Owles have the nicest focusing wheel I've encountered. Not ideal with thick gloves I aknowlege given its low profile but super-smooth with a nice degree of resistance and ZERO overtravel/slopp/notchiness.
