Has anyone ever used this and gotten an accurate reading? I would probably prefer Minolta's separate spot meter over it...but I was curious if anyone ever uses it.

Hi Jonathan! I have one for my minolta V, I use it once in a while but very rarely actually, I am not a reflective reading type of person I guess!!! I use it when I really have to. The readings seemed fine from what I could tell afterwards. 5 degrees is the big problem though, it's not spot enough.... But it's quite cheap, I got mine on ebay for 60$, and my lightmeter I paid 140$... The whole thing for 200$ canadian is quite affordable and you have the whole package. It comes in handy at times I guess!

Cool, thanks Christophe

I'm an incidental man myself, I can usually estimate my reflective readings by eye anyways, so yeah, I was just asking out of curiosity.

thanks!
