    I have been looking for one of these for a long time...............

    And finally found a Minolta Color Meter IIIF for a good price. This one is in mint condition and they are rare and usually command a pretty high price ($450-$500) but I think the seller did not do their research before he listed it! I got this one for about $330. They only read color temperature, not exposure. My Sekonic L-358 works perfectly for that. They come in especially handy doing studio work.

    I have never put much faith in the WB presets on any of my DSLR's but this one reads in K and also filter number (they did come out in the film days) for both ambient and flash. Dialing in the exact K color temperature into the D850 or D500 works like a champ and I no longer have to adjust color temperature in Camera Raw. They come in especially handy if you have mixed light sources in the same scene. Sekonic also makes one but I like this one better and the Sekonic one is more expensive.
