I´m looking to purchase a professional light meter, so can anyone give me some idea how good or bad the Sekonic L-758D DigitalMaster Light Meter is? From what I´ve read, it seems to be a good light meter. Thanks for any input.

Yes that's a brilliant highly sophisticated meter. Do you need something so advanced though? Sekonic and Gossen both provide a really good reliable range of meters.
For studio work i's thinking the Sekonic 308s will be all that I need, but its on my wish list for now - about £140 and it comes in bright colours
Will you be using yours for video work or anything that needs the higher spec features?

I don´t do video with my camera, though the Canon 5D MKII does offer you video. I use a video camera for film though. The L-758D will calibrate with my camera which will hopefully generate better images, especially the dynamic range. I am really looking to cover every eventuality and then not have to upgrade at a later time.
She-who-must-be-obeyed uses the Sekonic 358 which seems to be the current industry standard for working professionals.
Sekonic L-358 is a good choice, I had one for a while and it served me very well. Currently using the L-558, which is supoib!

I`m still using the Shepherd equivalent, the Polaris, purchased in about 96
It covers all my needs.

As will any meter.
