Light meters recommendations

Also, are the Spot/Incident combo models just as accurate and worthwhile?
Thanks for your advice!

The Sekonic L-508/L-508Cine seems to be popular choice.

This version is intended to replace the top of the line Zoomaster l608,
which is now discontinued.
One of the main differences to the old 608 model is that you can't zoom
the spot meter's viewfinder... I guess that something you can live without :-)
Before I worked with it- I compared the metering results with an old Spetra
meter which I used a few times. The result was just a 3/10 stop difference.
I recently shot a music video on 16mm, using ND filters and Spotmetering,
since it has presets for common filters workflow was very fast and easy-
metering was very accurate.
All in all I can say that the Sekonic is an awesome tool.
Although at the first time, handling appears a bit confusing - you'll learn it very
quickly; it's one of the best investements I did- for a reasonable price...
it's lower than the L608.
