Remember these on camera meter readings only get you to 18% gray. It works well for when you metered object (spot) or scene (averaged) is 18% gray, but if it's not and you dont catch that, or if your on auto exposure, you are screwed. It may be a pain, but getting a light meter that metered incident light is the best and most consistent, doesn't get fooled, and will nail exposures accordingly. It's just another bit of gear you need to lug with you, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature. (plus if the light doesn't change, there's no need to change exposures unless you want to).
