Default BS from Retailers..

OK, I have a young man that wants to get into evening/night hunting Coyotes. He was set on a 32mm scope and I explained the advantage of a 40mm scope. Both are IR. The gunshop he goes to is telling him that the 40mm will give him a wider field of view not more light transmitstion for the same power setting. Why do this unless they are clueless? Both scopes are the same model or the 40mm is a better qaulity. Seems to me he wants to clear out his bad buy. Your thoughts.

Edit: Bushnell shows a 41ft FOV at 3x w/ a 32mm and a 37ft FOV on a 40mm for the same model.

FOV has nothing to do with Objective lens diameter. NONE AT ALL The 40mm will let in slightly more light than the 32mm obj. For night hunting I would go with the biggest objective in the best scope in your price range I could find.

Maybe he didnt have the scope he wanted and wanted to "sell" him the other one.
