    Ok, if you do not want to buy it, let me know. I want it at $29!

    As mentioned, Minolta makes some of the best light meters; they can really give Sekonic a run for their money.

    don't concern with the many features. just learn to use its basic features eg. how to take readings, etc. contrast, etc can wait later.
