    I highly recommend the Pentax Digital Spotmeter. It's easy to use, has no "on" switch and works really well in the field. I've tried the Sekonic 758 and don't find it very usable in the field just because I'd have to keep turning it on and it didn't fit in my pocket as well.

    I actually tried getting the Sekonic, couldn't stand it, returned it, bought the Pentax off of eBay, liked that, then bought the Sekonic again a year later to use for flash work. Now I have both, but almost never use the spot part of the Sekonic.

    I recommend the Minolta Auto Spot 1° meter if you can find one , it's cheap it's massive and it's a great tool. If you're willing to pay a little more I recommend the Minolta Spotmeter F or M (Digital spotmeters).

    I saw this post when it first appeared. I was in the same situation. I just (today) happened upon the SVERDLOVSK-4. There is lots of information if you Google it. You can find them on Eb***Y for under a buck.

    +1 for the SEI. I love mine and it makes for a good defensive weapon. It does require a little training but, once learned, I think it is one of the best ever designed. I figure if good enough for Ansel Adams, it is more than good enough for me.
