    Schmidt & Bender PMII delivers (FILM)

    I'm frequently asked how good my S&B PMII scope is, if it is the best and if there are better scopes. That's impossible for me to answer lacking the measurement tools. However, I have never had to refrain from using an opportunity due my scope.

    On this trip I got the less than favorable combination of dusk, fog and downpour - at the same time. Still, with A LOT of help from the dog and good use of the binos we were able to get the shots.

    My conclusion would be the PMII scope is "good enough".

    I lost a rear bag in the weekend it was an upsetting moment. Also it's multicam so I will never see it again. You should get a small carabiner with a locking gate though.




    More related to the video, I spent my weekend carrying around a PMII only to shoot a chamois at 30 meters in glaring sunlight. I could have done that with a much lighter and cheaper Tasco 4x32. Of course, you carry it for all those other occasions.

    That was the biggest selling point for me as well. Going from the Zeiss Diavari, I traded optical quality "down" to go "up" in reliability.

    The turret is nice . I decided not to wait for an improvement from the factory, but rather had one made myself. It makes wind quite a bit easier to work with.

    After my own Zeiss experience other scopes just feel like an exercise in frustration.
    Is that a Zeiss or S & B you are looking to change from? What are you intending to replace it with?
