I don't own a 'good' spotmeter but I do own an ancient Soligor which I
picked up for next to nothing. Supposedly these are supposed to have
non-linearities (ie if you calibrate at one luminance it's off down the
scale) but I couldn't find any. Works just beautifully and a big plus it has
a rotating scale which you can stick a zone chart to.

The other spotmeter I own is in the Canon T90 and almost worth the price of
the body on its own.
