Lightmeters are expensive. I made myself a really good spot/incident meter with a digital LCD display, and it works great. I really like the looks of the digisix though because of the the analog wheel and I might end up buying one of those anyway.
Find a friend that has one, and play with theirs. If you don't have a friend with one, find a local camera shop that will let you play around with one in the store. Nothing beats hands on experience before you buy.
By the way, the Sekonic L-358 seems to have a cult following.
Hey watch it, I have a L358, who are you calling a cult ?
I have a Gossen Lunapro SBC ( Profisix) and a Western Euromaster I've had for more than twenty years they are both fine meters but since I bought the Sekonic L358 about a year ago I haven't used either of them, and am thinking of selling both of them Jeff because the Sekonic is such a versatile meter , is so quick and easy to use, and can take up to nine light readings remember them, and average them at the touch of a button in either ambient or flash light or a mixture of the two, telling you what proportion of the reading is from each, I'm very impressed with it.

[QUOTE=cooltouch;861333]The Sekonic L-358 sounds like a helluva meter, but geez, it's kinda pricey isn't it? I reckon I can do the calcs in my head and not complain too much with the money I've saved using my Luna Pro.[/QUOTE
They are quite expensive, but pro quality meters always have been, the Gossen Lunapro SBC when I bought it new more than twenty years ago was just as costly relatively.
