What makes it to me sound even more flagship (and it looks just like the
d2h) is the many multi part color sensitive meter. Sounds to me like the F5.
I don't think any of the meters since have had millions of little pixel
readers each reading different colors like the f5 but I could be wrong. I
believe the meter on the f5 is the most accurate way of measuring light for
photography ever invented. They should stick that technology in a hand held.
So we can use it with our Nikon view camera lenses! :)

I'm thinking of going Fujinon with my view camera lenses.
So far my only lens is a Fujinon 210.
They've gotten easier to get again now.
Avedon uses them so their bound to be really terrible.
I think with that much acreage you've got some leeway.
