I am amazed at how rapidly the collective memory totally forgets about a line of products which once held the enviable position of 'choice of pros' and 'choice of enthusiasts' alike! MINOLTA. Sekonic was a poor #2 'we try harder' product line in comparison with Minolta back in the 1990's, especially since the Sekonic products of the time had a rather quirky way of displaying the fractional f/stop exposures...something which they did not fix until after Minolta stopped making meters.
The enthusiasts (and many pros) chose the Minolta Autometer line, while those with lots of money might select the Minolta Flashmeter line. And the Minolta Spotmeter F was a one-degree spot-/flashmeter. All three lines could meter flash.
The last of the line was the Minolta Autometer V, and the Flashmeter VI. Both meters are now offered (with different model designations) as Kenko meters. I would not hesistate to recomment the Autometer IV or V, or the Flashmeter V or Vi, or the Spotmeter F, or the current Kenko products.
