    I read that paper, and was initially impressed that it came from Brooks.

    I emailed to inquire who the author was; faculty or student, etc, and the school didn't bother to respond.

    The longer I thought about it, the less scholarly that paper appeared to me. I have decided it appears to be a paper by an undergrad-level student who found it easier to dismiss the science that to research the reasons behind it.

    I just dumped my Sekonic, albeit a puny 308L II... it was consistantly 1.5 stops off, and all my studio work underexposed.
    My replacement: Gossen Luna-Star F2.
    It's spot on and my work reflects it's accuracy (no pun intended).
    Cheers!

    Any idea how old it was, whether it was photodiode or CsS sensor-based?

    It would be nice to know that, at least for me, out of curiosity, because I have never heard of a photodiode type beign 'off', but this is not unusual for other sensor types.

    Thanks

    I love my L608, personally I find it very accurate in terms of correct exposures in all modes. I have no idea how it works, but it really does for me.

    I think www.hksupplies.com are the cheapest new [their store on ebay is here http://www.stores.ebay.com/id=5360883&ssPageName=L2], however I bought used.

    Don't buy without the instruction manual though as its quite complex.

    Buy an ExpoDisk and calibrate your meter. I found that my meters were all over the place. Now they all agree and my negs are the happier for it. The meters I use are a Pentax 1 deg, Sekonic (semi spot, zoom thing) and a Gossen Luna Pro 6 with spot attachment.

    I have a 508 and love it too. Get a photography student to buy it for you - it's only about $300.
    Pity the dyslexic agnostic insomniac who lies awake night after night wondering if there is a dog.

    Person who has light meter always knows how to set shutter and aperture. Person with two meters, never knows.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
