    Look on the APUG classifieds. I would pounce on the $250 Zone VI modified one NOW, before I do. If you miss it, there are also a few others there for good prices.

    The 408 has a spotmeter, but it doesn't have the super-narrow angle of the pentax spotmeter. More similar to the spotmeters that were showing up in some slr cameras before the digital era.

    I need it for landscape use so I prefer to have a spot meter

    I have been borrowing my friend's Sekonic 558. It's good but it's a bit bulky and heavy...

    I don't mind to get one which has minimum functions but with a spot meter as long as it's compact.

    Many thanks for your help!

    Not a spotmeter, but my favorite compact pocket meter anyway:

    The Voigtlander VC Meter II
    • Meter angle approximately 30 degrees
    • Silicon Metering Cell
    • LED meter read out, center round green LED, red LEDs on both sides
    • ISO 25 to 3200 with 1/3 stop increments on the film speed dial

    42.5mm W x 37mm L x 19.5mm H

    Zeiss Ikophot. Beautiful, accurate and easy to use. You don't need a spot meter for landscapes.

    I know this meter is not a spot but it is the best built and pretty accurate. The plus side is it is so small it clips into a flash shoe as well as any shirt pocket....

    The Leica MC light meter. They generally sell for @ $40 or so and are redily avalable. No batteries to contend with either.

    Another vote for the Pocket Spot - tiny, and does everything the bigger ones do - they may even have a few new ones to sell soon.
