Re: Incident vs Reflective accuracy
4

As an old repairman, I find this amusing.  Very few shop had the equipment to calibrate an incident meter.  Every shop had a calibrated light box for adjusting reflective meters.  So we (and almost any other non-factory shop)  would put on the reflective disk and set the meter.  If your dome was new and not yellowed, your incident might be close.

But then some older film cameras and lenses had some wide tolerances compared to what we expect today. Also different companies had different ideas what the correct exposure should be.   Arguing over fractional stops was laughable.
