Could you suggest any others that might be a little less $$. I might just get one used, but if I could get one new under $175, that would be better. I don't need lots of features...just good exposures.
Jeff, do you (or anyone else) have any experience with the 308? As mentioned above, I'm not looking for lots of bells and whistles. If it saves me $75-$100 and gets the same quality exposure, with less features (that I don't need)...then I'm in!
P.S. (&correction to above) The L358 is more like $350-$375/ a little out of my price range.

Quoting JeffM (Reply 8): No, that would kind of defeat the purpose of an ambient light meter, you get an incident meter to read light falling on your subject, your camera already reads light reflecting off.........
This is true...However, I was just thinking of it as a feature that I might need in some other situation in the future. But again, the main purpose is to have a device capable of incident metering. So it sounds like the less expensive model may due the trick and satisfy my budget requirements.
