I think you'll find plenty of Sekonic L-358 owners on this forum and elsewhere. It seems to be the most popular basic meter on the market nowadays.

+1 wouldn't use my MF without it. Great piece of equipment to invest in.

The L-358 is an excellent meter.

Do yourself a favor and search the lighting forum for the Sekonic L-358 and you'll find an incredible number of posts and threads discussing this meter as well as comparisons and questions from others. You'll find a lot of great information, as this is a very common question, and a very popular meter.
