I've been a pro photographer for the last 35 years. I don't care how many zones the metering system has, you still are only choosing a shutter speed and f-stop. I stopped even using meters after several years of shooting because I pretty much knew what the exposure was going to be. If I was wrong I would just adjust it up or down a little. You still have to use your brain to decide whether to expose for shadows or highlights depending on how you want to interpret the scene, etc. Frankly, it annoys the hell out of me that Canon would arbitrarily jack the price of the camera way up. My advice would be to buy a Mark II while you still can. Anything that surpasses the image quality of the Mark II is either way too expensive for the small quality improvement, or total overkill unless you're planning on viewing your photos at billboard size.
