Nikko Diamond 10-50x60 Mk1 & 2, & BSA 10-50x60 : Many appear to focus as a minimum to 10yds, however they can be re-parallaxed closer, however experience says it should not be done below 9 yds. There seem to be some however that do come down to 8. Bushnell Elite 4200 8-32x40 focuses down to 10yds minimum. Unclear if that is AO or sidewheel version, or if the sidewheel version requires re-parallaxing to obtain this. Falcon T-35 focuses down to 12yds as standard. FT-X Focuses down to 10yds as standard Leupold Competitions can be re-parallaxed down to 9yds. Nightforce 12-42 x 56 NXS as standard requires re-parallaxing before it can be used for airgun ranges and still requires an adapter for close targets. Sightron SIII 10-50x60 focuses down to just under 10 yds as standard, however reports are that it can be possibly re-parallaxed to come down closer, other reports have minimum focus as 11yds. Weaver T36 : 16.5 yds minimun focus, 50ft adapter required.
