    If I remember correctly the Pentax digital spot was a bit cheaper than this new but it's the best spotmeter there is and it's not made anymore. Bidding started at $0.99, several people wanted it, and the free market established its value. But before anyone asks, I'm not parting with mine for a mere $1000!

    dang, I'm glad that I bought mine several years ago for 1/3 of his asking price, before they became collector's items!

    I am glad I bought mine in terrible condition for 14 bucks. (Yes it still works great, just looks terrible)

    It looks just like a Sekonic spot meter.

    Yow!

    That said... I've lived without a spot-meter this long (ignoring the TTL metering on my 35mm camera of course,) but it would be a 'nice to have' (I do have an incident/ambient light meter.) So any recommendations on spot meters that are worth sticking in an eBay saved search just in case a bargain pops up some day?
    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...
