There have been many recent articles re: exposure meters. If your interest is mainly in B&W, and you like the "zone system", I can recommend the Pentax Digital Spotmeter sold by the "Zone IV" company in Newfane, Vermont. (their products are carried by Calumet Camera). The meter is modified by them for use with B&W film, it is extremely accurate, highly repeatable, and VERY easy to use. Over the years I've used many meters, however this is the best I've used so far. Granted, the zone system may appeal mostly to large format users, however if you like that system, use mostly B&W, and want a spotmeter, it will be worth your time to take a look at the Pentax Digital Spotmeter modified by "Zone IV".
