Why a built in meter? Lots of fine RF's without one. Regardless, I have the RC and the Canon QL17 GIII, (the GIII is out of service until I replace the light sealing foam). I like the compact form factor of the RC. One negative note about the RC is it's very silly and hard to obtain 43.5mm filter thread size. This I solved by obtaining a 43.5 to 43mm step-down ring from one of those HK shops on ebay. It does not block the meter eye and 43mm filters and hoods are much more easy to obtain than the 43.5 size. The shutter release on the RC is long and somewhat high tension because the metering is a 'trapped needle' type and the aperture is set as you press down on the release. However, with a little practice you can learn to smoothly and repeatedly take up the slack and then, when you are ready, depress the shutter button that one last millimeter to take the shot.
