    I have a good understanding of "The Zone System" though I've never really
    put it to use, but I want to change that and that's why I'm looking at spot
    meters!

    I'll probably get either the Pentax digital meter, or their analog model
    There are several listed on eBay and a couple of them were described as
    having a "Zone VI" modification; what exactly does this mean? How does this
    differ from just buying the stick-on "Zone Dials"? I couldn't find any
    mention of a modification on Pentax's web site, nor do any of the on-line
    camera stores mention it, is this some kind of a 3rd party modification?

    Thanks all, for my continuing education!

    The Zone VI modifications to the meter include calibration and filters to
    equalize the meter spectral response to that of panchromatic film. BTW, the
    zone stick-ons are nice - very handy.
