    I dont care for spot meters, for the most part I find them bulky, I my perferance for day light either the Weston Ranger 9, not a true spot meter but easy to use with the viewfind or Weston Master V or VI, no battery, very good in bright to dim lighting, easy to read and set up, or in very dim lighting or night the Gossen Luna Pro S. Having said this I do use a spot meter on occassions when I shot using the Zone system.

    I would like something like the Gossen Profiflash/Lunasix F;

    Shrunk to 2/3 of its size;

    Using AA batteries;

    That replaces the meter movement (needle) with a multi-segment digital display that appears analogue in nature, and lights up when needed.

    I'm using an older Zeiss Ikon Ikophot T. It takes a 9-volt radio/smoke detector battery, can be used with either the left or right hand and can do incident or reflective metering.

    It has no meter needle to be knocked out of calibration - just two small glow bulbs. It's accurate, and the battery lasts a long time -- like several years under moderate use. It's brilliantly simple in its design and to use.

    I think the Weston Master III is very handsome with its brushed-steel case, but the many small numbers on its dial make it difficult to use, especially in dim light. But a selenium meter isn't the best tool for dim light.

    I have a fondness for my Weston Master II w/Invercone. Checked it against the meter in my D90 (manual lens) yesterday and it's dead nuts on.

    I like that Ikophot. It would be worth having just to appreciate the cleverness of the designers.
    I use a Master III for general use, with and without the Invercone, and an old Lunasix for low light. I don't have much trouble reading the Weston, when it's too dim to read the numbers I reach for the Gossen.
    I have a spare Weston, NIB, a spare LunaPro, NIB, and a spare Lunasix. I'm set for life. Several lives, actually.

    I love the Sekonic L-208. It's reliable and is very easy to use. It is quite accurate too. I love having the dial of the range exposures to choose from.

    I got that Ikophot meter, but in the cream white/brown version. That looks much more related to those meters from the fifties.

    Like Ektagraphic, I really like the Sekonic L-208 Twinmate. It's a classic design. It has all the functions you need for casual shooting. And you can mount it on your camera, which really sells it.

    I have a Minolta Flash Meter V, and it does the job, but I liked the Auto Meter IV better because it was a bit smaller and sleeker.

    For ones I don't own, I like the shoe mount meter by Voigtlander.
