Just received the lucid magnifier yesterday, took it out of the box and inspected it. Out of the box things seemed fine. The problems with this magnifier aren't physical though they're functional. The sight picture is way too dark, at 2X I can see farther without the magnifier and at 5X I realized how embarrassed I was for buying this magnifier. I have a Primary Arms 3X that was supposed to be replaced by the lucid but that's not happening now. The PA3X has a brighter sight picture and sees twice as far out with clarity.
I'm not saying you have to go get the PA3X but I am saying don't get the lucid 2X-5X variable!
Pros: Optics planets return policy
Cons: Wasted mine and optics planets time...
Would recommend: No

Initial impression

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on December 20, 2012
I just received this magnifier and wanted to give my initial impressions. I chose the Lucid after much research on the matter. I believe it is the only 2x5 variable magnifier on the market. Magnification ring operates smoothly and with minimal effort. Glass is clear, and ocular focus function also is smooth and provides crisp sight picture. Seems to be well constructed and a solid device. Reviews I have seen elsewhere criticized field of view, but I can't criticize that point. It is a magnifier with a small objective lens. Field of view is a trade off for compact size. For a truly large field of view, you will have to use a scope. For what it is, FOV is acceptable in my opinion. I am waiting on an ADM swing off mount to pair this with a Trijicon RMR. I will post again when I have mounted the Lucid. For the money though, I think you would be hard pressed to beat this deal.
Pros: a very good magnifier for the money
Cons: none really...
Would recommend: Yes
