I have had a Sekonic L508 from new - probably 6 or 7 years. I never treated it roughly, never got it damp, always kept it in a case in a camera bag. Just recently it showed the E5 fault code mid reading. I sent it to the official Sekonic British repair facility who replied in a handwritten scrappy note 'Owing to a recent announcement by Sekonic parts are not available.' So that's it - hundreds of pounds out and no way to service. I'll have to replace it - but it won't be with a Sekonic! So who's spotmeter doesn't break?
