I really haven't found it to be an issue. Shooting B8s at 25y, the issue is more me than parallax. Shooting 2/3 or full size steel at 30-50y, it's not even a concern.

I can't remember if I mentioned it before, but I do like having the tall sights for shooting from unusual positions. Sometimes the dot isn't where you think it's going to be, since there isn't really a natural POA in certain positions, so a quick check of the irons brings the dot back. Having a circle dot also helps with that, too.

EDIT: Whoops, I guess I did mention it.
