Me and a few of my friends are using the Minolta V F light meter. It does incident and reflective light reading, can also keep in memory for 2 readings plus the current readings. (useful for portrait shoot where 1 side of the face is dark and the other side is bright.)
He is looking for bang for buck and Vf has no spot metering.
Get the Polaris (there are two version, with/without spot) from Ruby (it is behind their showroom, in blue boxes) or Konota (Nelson Tan on the left when you enter the shop), good and accurate, has spot, flash, incident/reflected
