    Roger, that's where I sent mine. Haven't heard from him yet.

    Maybe I was just lucky. I would give them a call and see what's up.

    Hello all. Thanks for all your help. I got my meter back. However, now I'm in the market for a Sekonic L-558R meter. If anyone has one for sale, please let me know.

    Okay dear APUGers I need your help yet again. So I got my meter back and it's all good. I'm still in the market for a Sekonic L-558R meter, but, in the meantime, is there a good, affordable spot meter (1 degree) I can buy? The 558Rs are going for about $300, is there a good spot meter that I can buy right now for much less? I know I can buy a spot attachment for my Luna Gossen Pro, but that only gives me a 7 degree view. I want a 1 degree view. Can you guys suggest something that meets my requirements? Thanks.

    I use the Pentax Digital spot - which gives me a 1 degree spot, and is very intuitive for shooting zone system. I also have a Minolta Autometer IVF with the 5degree spot attachement. Other than the spot size, the way that the minolta provides the exposure information I find much harder to use than with the Pentax.

    I don't think that you will save $$$ with the Pentax, but it does work wonderfully.

    If you shop carefully, the Minolta Spotmeter M (Spotmeter F if you have to have studio flash metering) is usually able to be found for under $200 ($200-250 for the F). I have an F and it is terrific. In addition to taking single readings, you can also use it to calculate high-low-range readings, and display those readings on the LCD.

    I thought I could save a few bucks, but you don't really save much, do you? At those prices, I might as well go ahead and buy the meter I want: the Sekonic L-558R. What should I pay for one of those? Thanks.
