    Zoom/Focus Lever

    In case it's useful to anyone:

    I shoot a lot of actuality with our AF101 and I often miss the zoom lever of traditional broadcast lenses. So, I picked up a couple of Varavon "Sling" levers to try out. We've got a UK importer (proav.co.uk) who sells them for 3.00 each - a lot less than getting them directly from Varavon on ebay.

    Initial impressions after a few hours of shooting: it's a little flexible - but solid enough and flexes less than the heavy duty cable tie I tried before and it won't damage your lens if you accidentally snag/bash it.

    And, because I'm changing lenses fairly regularly, it quickly pulls on and off, even under pressure (leaving it on makes it awkward to store the lens. Time will tell - and they're cheap enough to buy one for all of your lenses to have on standby.) Here are some quick and dirty iPhone snaps:
