Changing the lens will invalidate the warrenty but changing the lens is not harmful in itself. The Ranger uses the same lens family as the NVMT, it's actually a 3X lens with some native digital mag.

Why would you want reduced mag?
It gives a broader field of view for target/quarry detection, navigation or use behind a scope.

Yukon will probably produce a ranger based digital NVMT pretty soon anway.

I don't really understand why you need a lower magnification.
5x is optimal for most uses. Moreover I think the optical system in the NVMT devices and the Ranger are a bit different, so there is no guarantee that the Ranger will work OK after you have changed the lens.

The Digital Ranger does not have any additional lens systems. The factory 5X lens is the only magnification that comes with the unit.

The NVMT monoculars have additional lens systems but not the Digital Ranger.

Actually, they are interchangable. You would be better off buying the 1X lens. These units use a combination of optical and digital mag. So the 1X lens will deliver 2X mag.

The lenses on the Digital Ranger are not compatible with the NVMT lenses. The factory 5x lens is excellent, but not changeable.

Has anyone swapped out lenses and used the low power for night time navigation? I like the 5 power for viewing, but night hiking/navigation possibilities hold a much stronger draw if it works, especially for only $24 extra!
