I bought this light meter in 2017 or 2018, I do not remember, obviously used but in excellent condition of its age. The batteries had to be changed with a new one, and I was pleasantly surprised that no leakage occurred with the old one. The battery contacts were clean and the new replacement, Varta 625, got the meter alive.
Excellent tool in low light, and I se it very often if in that sort of environment. Not using it much in broad day light, but in the evenings or dusk, you could not find a better tool to work with.
