I think that have a built-in meter is a great deal. I don´t like handheld meters, they are chunky and its one more thing to carry and take care. I use it only when the camera doesn´t have one. Or I use Sunny 16.

I had once a Yashica MAT that I bought at an used furniture store (no kidding). The camera was covered in dust and clean it cost me more than I paid for it (was really cheap). Although the camera was 40 years old the selenium meter was working perfectly.
