10D, anybody going to miss a spotmeter?

The big differences between spot and partial are...

a more precise area is metered with spot and with spot (at least the 1D) you can take multiple readings to get an overall exposure which is balanced for all the metered areas.

The 10D seems to be the camera I've been waiting for, the only
thing missing is the lack of spotmeter. I must admit I dont use it
a lot, but when I do, I like the fact that I can get a reading on a
specific point.

I wonder why Canon ommited this feature which is standard in just
about every other SLR and DSLR.

Is anybody else concerned about the lack of a spotmeter?

I'm slightly disapointed, but not surprised. The Elan 7 doesn't
have it either. While a partial meter doesn't quite replace a
spot, it can often (but not always) serve the same function.
