For the same eye movement off perfect centre the Lightstream has no more parallax error than say the bushnell 6500, it does however allow you to move off the centre a massive amount whilst still retaining the sight picture which gives more extreme potential for parallax error, in the tests I did we are usually talking a max of 5mm off centre in normal HFT shooting conditions.

I have a lightstream I use for the Extreme Comps as my little Leup gives a slightly better image & less parallax error due to the smaller objective.

My choice between the Lightstream & the Hawke would be the Lightstream every time as the Hawke isn't in the same league optically & gave me a headache after 5mins of use, the only negative points for the lightstream is they are very long and the mildots are a little too thick for my liking
