The SIII Sightron is a great little scope, I've been using one for 18 months through Winter and Summer and I can't fault it.

I have also used the 36 times Sightron for a number of years, crystal clear indoor and good at 50m.
It will save some money also.

They have now put the price up on the Sightron from 1345 to over 1400 so hopefully you got it at the better price. I was looking at it also but can't justify the 1400. Have gone with the Hawke Sidewinder ED 10-50x60

The FT version has illumination, closer parallax and the stunning side wheel.

Default Sightron S111 10-50x60

With regard to benchrest only, I use the cross hair with the small dot in the middle.
Also, I have an optical enhancer, which gives me an extra 3.5 times http://www.bulzeyepro.com/
The Sightron enables the fitting of Hoya photographic filters and I find the yellow one considerably
improves the contrast for benchrest.

does the bulls eye interfere with the clarity of the optics
