Default Advice Needed

Hello All,

I am thinking of adding a light meter (Sekonic L-358 ) to my camera gear and was wondering what your opinions are. Do any of you use a light meter in the Digital age and if so do you find it useful on a regular basis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a good hand held and don't need it as I adjust with the historygram to get it right. Save for a good lens would be better spent.

The only time I'd ever use a light meter (if I had one) is for my 4x5 view camera. In-camera light meters have enough modes that they're good for almost any situation.
