Daniel, I am interested in finding out the color response of my meters. How would you go about doing that?

So there are a substantial diffrence in price. And i need the money for my new large format camera.
I think i can stand the Sekonic 558 Dual master
Not sure about the type, but I use one of these seconics with spot, incident and flash modes.
It doesn't really work in low light, when exposures are around a second or longer you'll have to be really lucky for the thing to give a reading. So for tripod photography I have to bring my digital nikon as a light meter wich feels a bit stupid having such an expensive light meter at home. Maybe gosson or such are better with this?
I can use my Sekonic L-358 for long night exposures. Quite often those would be two to four minutes, or somewhere near that. One thing that helps is to remove the incident dome and replace with the fresnel (name wrong?) piece. That gives roughly a 50º field of view, though is actually a reflective reading. I do this primarily when using E-6 films with my 4x5, when I want the accuracy.
Sekonic Light Metres
I've used the L-408, 508 and currently am happy to own and use the L-608.
This recent metre allows for zoom spot metering amidst a whole bunch of other features.
I find it very versatile and useful for me in my work.
Perhaps visit the Sekonic website and compare the different metres, looking for one that will meet your particular needs.
In the end, you'll have to decide which one is best for your photography.
