Why use a light meter: somebody persuade me.
I still use Polaroids for my RZ67 shoots, as said to test lights and make sure rhe look is as expected, but you're also right, the having to explain how it's not the same as the end result image can annoying if they (client) don't understand.
Side note, I just used my light master tonight to take a picture of the Christmas tree, it helped me to expose the tree as the in camera meeter might expose darker as not to overblow the tree lights and lose detail in the leaves so I used my light meeter no digital...
