Well, it finally had to happen.

My venerable Nikomat EL, nearly 30 years old now, died. The meter does not meter, but everything else works just fine. If I use my Sekonic meter and set the Nikomat manually, the exposures are just fine.

So, do I have to fall back to manual mode or can I somehow get the metering system repaired? Is it worth it to get it repaired? Am I a sentimental fool for still using it? Etc...

Opinions solicited.
