I am looking into getting a sekonic digital light meter. I've narrowed it down to either the L-558 cine or the L-758 cine. I'm just curious as to what the differences are between the two meters. I realize sekonic needs to keep making money. I just would like to know if the extra money for a 758 is worth it.

Thank you in advance.

To be honest unless you have money to burn I would not bother.
I bought an ex-demo 508 a few years ago from B+H, still my main meter, they have a lightly used one right now.
