The reflected light attachment for the Autometer Vf is different than for the Autometer IVf...I had noticed different model number designations in the past, but had never tried to use the reflected light attachment with my Autometer Vf before! It was an unused accessory. On the Autometer Vf the spot attachment causes a little 'reflect light' indicator to show itself on the LCD.

In reading a Konica Minolta PDF on the newly announced Autometer Vf, it mentions the 5 degree spot attachment and a '4 degree' attachment called the 'Reflected Light Attachment II' --which I wonder if they made a typo in their PDF intending to state '40 degree'. Interesting the 5 degree spot attachment works fine on both Autometer IVf and Vf, while the reflected disk does not.
Autometer Vf is marketed now under the THK banner with the Kenko KFM1100 model designation. and the reflected light attachment option KFM400 is available for it http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...hment_for.html
