Sekonic 208 on Lynx 14E

Has anybody used a Sekonic 208 in the hotshoe of a Lynx 14E? I want to make sure it will clear the rewinder (when recessed). Thanks!

John, I had the same question. See this thread for options.

Here's what a 208 looks like on the 14e. I didn't like it at all. I do not remember for sure, but I think with proper positioning of the shoe the 208 does not conflict with the rewind knob.

I do not have a good solution for adding a meter to the Lynx 14e.

Thanks for the picture! Yeah I remember reading your detailed thread (thanks, btw) as I was researching hotshoe meters, but don't remember seeing this pic. Sounds like I might be wearing the meter around my neck, but good to know it'll fit.

I hadn't posted the Sekonic pic in that other thread. In hand it felt so clumsy and fragile, just not an elegant solution. I really wish the VC II meter would fit nicely on the Lynx. On the Canonet, it's perfect.
