Is focus or exposure giving you the problems with your IIIC, Kapa? On my IIIC the meter doesn't work at all, so I use either a handheld meter, or simply sunny 16 in bright daylight, and extrapolate down an EV or 2 for cloudy daylight, etc.
If focus is the problem you could try zone focussing based on estimating the distance to the subject and setting the focus ring according to the distance scale. And of course with small apertures you can take advantage of depth of focus to get your subject in focus, too.
The thing I've really come to love about the Retina is that with the leaf shutter up front, once you've set the EV number on the lens you have presented on the scale all possible combinations of f/stop and shutter speed, so you can immediately choose between narrow or wide DOF, or slow or fast shutter speed, as the subject matter dictates.
