John Fielder has an excellent discussion on this subject in his book "Photographing the Landscape: The Art of Seeing". I shoot primarily color, Velvia, and I find that green will generally approximately meter as 18% grey, or I can meter off a medium tone rock. Frankly, I find that in a fast moving situation, I can get good results by using my Nikon N80 (with same film and filter) as a meter.
