The first and only meter I bought new was a Sekonic L398M that's shelfbound and seldom used. Bought both my 308 and 558 used--no worries. When shopping, I found used meters tended to fall into two piles: beat-up and barely used. The latter usually were amateur-owned and often way more meter than necessary or just not figured out/used much. Sekonic 508s are pretty cheap now and 558s a bit more. The 758 is really overkill for a film shooter.
