    You're correct, I forgot the newer cameras have the 1/3 stop settings. But, they still have shutter tolerance that can be as much as 25% +/- and still be within spec.
    The electronic shutters are more consistent and accurate than mechanical but still the probability that you can get exposures within that 1/10 stop is pretty slim.

    With studio flash exposure is done with the lights, not the camera so the exposure can be more accurate.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Just about all the leading modern digital meters Gossen , Sekonic, Kenko, can read to 1/10 of a stop, both for ambient and flash light.

    Hey, if I was to use a meter solely for spot metering, would it be more practical to buy the 358 and the spot add-on, or the 758? I know the 758 has it built in, was just curious as to how they compare in spot.

    I've calculated it and they're about the same price, so I might end up going with the 758.

    Compare the features and sensitivy. Sekonic provides all the info. The 758 will have more.

    For me Robert after a lifetime of using meters that take general reflected light readings ( Western Euromaster , Gossen Profisix, Lunapro SBC ) I would miss the ability to take a genaral reflected reading which the 758 can't do, only spot and incidental.

    If you're interested mainly in spot metering then getting the meter with builtin spot is better than using an attachment as most of the spot attachment could suffer from parallax.

    Not in this case Chan, all the Sekonic spot attachments for the L-358 I,5, and 10 degree have the prefix N.P. meaning none parallax.

    Okay, well now I'm thinking of buying a L-508 which is a little cheaper and still has more than I need.

    I don't think they still make the L-508 Robert , It would have to be second hand, It's not listed as a product on the Sekonic website or on the importers price list.
