That's a lot of ifs. And I can tell you from experience, the Nikon F5 would
not give you the proper exposure in snow, regardless of the advertising
copy's claims to the contrary. It's the best meter out there, but not
better than the R8 or EOS1n by any stretch of the imagination that would
make me go back now. In snow, and on the beach, the exposure is easy. Sunny
