It's a must.
A lot of people will say, "you can just look at the screen." Clear indication of amateur status. Using a light meter not only allows you to easily set up your ratios, it's also a lot quicker than using the screen on your camera and way more accurate.
I used to have the 358 but replaced it with the smaller/lighter L-308S. You get the same basic functionality, but I do miss having an illuminated display.
I have an L308 as well but it's the earlier version, I think the 308B (full stops .. lol) and no ambient / flash mix readout. The 358 is bigger but has more features.
And I call total BS on anyone who tells me that they can meter to within a half stop using body parts and LCD's .. I could pop a single strobe and guarantee they wouldn't have a freakin clue if it was F8 or F11. What do you guys do for ratios? .. use two hands, or one hand and one foot
