I dont care for spot meters, for the most part I find them bulky, I my perferance for day light either the Weston Ranger 9, not a true spot meter but easy to use with the viewfind or Weston Master V or VI, no battery, very good in bright to dim lighting, easy to read and set up, or in very dim lighting or night the Gossen Luna Pro S. Having said this I do use a spot meter on occassions when I shot using the Zone system.
