Well, I want to chip in here,
I use both, I mean I use my lightmeter (Sekonic 608), the camera reading
in-camera but also look at the histogram in my live-view, as I swing the
camera from side to side.
What is handy with my lightmeter is that I can take 10 readings and average
them out. I definately don't think that lightmeters are obsolite yet. One
thing I think is more important, or equally as one can not do with some sort
of metering (be it manual or auto) is color meters, and again we can shoot a
grey card, 24-patch Macbeth chart et...
I would buy one if they were not so bl**dy expensive ;-)
anyway, just my $.02
PS: In camera 1Degree or less spot meter is archived with a very long lens
