I recently traded my ancient Gossen LunaPro, my similarly 
ancient Minolta Autometer III and a fairly new Gossen Pilot 
2 to obtain a Sekonic Digi Lite F L328 meter and 5 degree 
spot viewfinder after spending a lot of time playing with 
every meter I could get my hands on. I found the size and 
weight of this meter to be just about perfect and the 
controls/readout to be very intuitive and difficult to make
a mistake with. It has just enough features to do anything
I will ever want, and not enough to make me forget how it 
works between times I use it.

I use the incident light measuring mode most of the time
as I've nearly always found that to be a more accurate way
to obtain precise exposure, but the 5 degree spot attachment
is useful when I'm trying to measure a difficult scene or
trying to gauge flash fill balances accurately. It's a very 
versatile meter even though it has about 1/3 the features
of some of the other meters I looked at.
