Gossen Sixtomat F2 or Sekonic 308X

Currently I have a Sekonic 398A, a really old Gossen Pilot and myLightmeter Pro phone app. All produce good results but I've been looking at meters with a digital display. Having owned a 308, it's a very capable meter and will do more than I will ever need. Gossen has introduced an upgrade to the Sixtomat which provides backlighting to the display for five seconds when values are under EV 3.
The Sekonic 308X is currently available, the upgraded Sixtomat was released at the end of October so most of the available inventory won't have the backlight feature. The ability to read flash output is about equal on both meters and both operate off of a single AA battery. Just curious about what other members opinion is and I'm in no particular hurry to buy one.
