I hear a lot about the Pentax spot meters.  I'm sure that they are available used.  I have no idea what a fair price would be though.  Here is a link to B&H' site for the Pentax meter - I suppose it is a start:


Hope this helps.

Subject: [Leica] Spot meter in my future?

> I mentioned shooting a couple of chamber music concerts last weekend.

The bad news is that on Sunday night, the lighing was so harsh and
contrasty that I have a lot of blown faces.  There was no way to meter
beforehand, as the stage lights were not on until the performers came out.
I used my old trick of metering off the light-colored stage floor and
closing down a stop, but it wasn't enough for Neopan 1600.

Since I enjoy shooting concerts and theatre, I think there's a spot meter
in my future. I wish Gossen made a spot meter attachment for my Luna Pro
Digital, but I don't believe they do.

Can anyone recommend a reliable make of spot meter that's available used?  

What might I expect to pay for a spot meter?
