The second focal plain is the one you are looking for . it means as you mag up the ret lines stay the same size . on the lupes . mainly there are two types used . the MK4 , which is a fixed mag at either 32 or 35 . 40 mil objective lens . so it can seem darkish unless you have very good eyes . light and needs a small sidewheel to be at it's best . small gaps between the top ranges . the 20+50 by 50 is the other comes in two types . but really the are much the same , cept some say the later models are brighter . these are very good scopes BUT can suffer from heat and light changes . also cold . personally i love em . you need to know what you are doing buying a 20+50 cos there are some right plonkers out there as well as the creme . prices for a MK4 are from 450 to 750 depending on if they are a 32 mag or a 35 mag . plus condition and of course there ability to rangefind to your satisfaction the 20+50 goes from 600 to 1000 . both of these need a close focus adapter to use as they mostly only come down to 15 yards without and eight yards with . try before buy . not buy before try . .???
