I think the Weston Master III is very handsome with its brushed-steel case, but the many small numbers on its dial make it difficult to use, especially in dim light. But a selenium meter isn't the best tool for dim light.
I like that Ikophot. It would be worth having just to appreciate the cleverness of the designers.
I use a Master III for general use, with and without the Invercone, and an old Lunasix for low light. I don't have much trouble reading the Weston, when it's too dim to read the numbers I reach for the Gossen.
I have a spare Weston, NIB, a spare LunaPro, NIB, and a spare Lunasix. I'm set for life. Several lives, actually.
