It's not that hard to convert digital readouts to Zones at all. Just get a fine point pen, a strip of paper and some Scotch tape. Then, make a little Zone scale (cheat sheet) with numbers 3, 5, and 7 appropriately spaced, and stick it up against the little ring these spotmeters have. I had to do it because of a tendency to forget which "direction" to go. Now if I take a highlight reading (for slides), I just put that reading on the little number 7. If I take a shadow reading for print film, I put that reading across from the little number 3. If I was reading from a graycard or a somewhat middle tone, I just stick it in the middle on the number 5.
