Thread: Eye relief range

    Default Eye relief range

    Does it differ among scopes?
    By range I mean 5-7cm vs 5-9 cm as an example.
    Are all scopes the same given the same specs?
    So in other words, given the same specs, does one scope give you more “range” for eye to lens distance than another? Range not distance.
    Sorry, struggling to put this in words and have tried to google.

    Hi Kobus.
    Think you referring to 'eye relief'.
    Yes it varies a lot from scope to scope, application to application.
    Usually displayed in the scope specifications

    I understand eye relief, but want to know if it is “fixed” ie 5-7 cm on one brand and then maybe 5-9 on another brand with the same specs otherwise.

    Hulle almal verskil, kyk op die internet elke model se specs, jy sal daar sien wat die eye relief vir daai maak en model is.

    If I'm not mistaken, magnification plays a role as well? (Plz correct me if I'm wrong)

    I might be wrong here but I understand magnification will change the field of view and not eye relief distance. Also magnification effects ranging of target wich should be done at a specific magnification as per scope specs. Unless its an ffp scope then jt does not matter.



    Please clarify if mistaken
