I've noticed there are several different "red-dot" sights in battlefield 3:
and maybe some more, not sure. But all of the above are available for my M416.
Apart from slightly different reticles (eg circle or dot), are there any other differences that actually affects gameplay?

The Kobra sight is a russian red dot sight, and the Reflex sight is an american red dot sight.
The PKA-S is a russian holographic sight, and the Holographic is an american holographic sight.
Holographic sights have a more open sight line but you aim down the sights slightly slower than red dot sights.
Red dot sights are more confined, but aim down the sights the quickest of any scopes.
All the above screenshots were taken at roughly the same 145 meter position from a capture point, so they should reflect equal distances.

Just preference. Certain ones are unlocked first on particular weapons. There are no game-play advantages aside from preference. I personally like the Kobra and the Holographic. The PKA-S sits high on the gun and I don't care for that.
