    Anyone who has a Schmidt Bender PM11 can now have a proper Zoom lever for it made from cnc machined alloy.
    The chaps at Rowen Engineering made me a prototype which has under gone testing for the last month. The final product is now ready and available in either polished alloy or anodized black.
    One of the features of it is the multi position settings of the lever. You can set the lever in 4 different positions either to the left or right. Having tested this for them i can vouch it's top quality and not a cumbersome add on.
    Check out their website for further details.

    Good to hear that the lever/handle is adjustable...
    Their zoom ring levers can be a no no if using a cam style or shark fin sidewheel.....
    (On a Sightron anyway)

    On the Schmidt theres 1 large notch on the rubber ring. What they've done is put 4 large notches into the profile so you can set it without obscuring the ranging pointer.

    Does this zoom lever also work on a S&B FT2?

    Cheers
