I'm a big fan of my Sekonic L-758, but that's a costly meter. Color meter I've never needed, personally, and they're pretty costly at around $1000. . .
I hear good things about the Spectras, as well, which come in cool colors.

the 758 doesn't have a zoom, persay, though it does magnify. I believe the 608 is the same way.
