I love my ancient, color corrected Soligar, which is similar to the old Pentax and is no longer available. But I also have have a Sekonic, which is excellent. I also have an older Gossens meter. I prefer the Sekonic, which is more flexible and may be a bit easier to use. It also has a narrower minimum spot. The zoom spot on the Sekonic is sometimes handy. The newer Sekonics use lithium batteries, which last a bit longer than the AA cells used previously but are more expensive and harder to find.
