Yes, sorry... FOV isn't to do with objective. You're correct. From the March's i've looked through they are tight because of their focal length, something that isn't published... but leads to better range finding... (in my opinion), because the longer focal length gives a shallower depth of field. But it also makes for a narrower field of view.

Talking to one company last year, they said their marketing dept had said their customers like the bright wide field of view so they could find targets easily. My comment was if their natural point of aim was half decent they'd be looking at it when they looked through the scope. They were a little taken aback to hear that some just got on with fixed 32-40-45x scopes...
