Fast focus affects the magnification/parallax and both parameters affect the POI on some scopes so it has to be about lens alignment?

I like the fast focus feature (as opposed to the screw in/locking screw type) and was quite happy to see it on the new Bushnells, but maybe it isnít such a good idea, but than again it seems to work ok on other Bushnells like the Elite 3200 10x40 and there is a lot of them about on the HFT circuit?
