Can I set my Sekonic's shutter speed to 1/80th of a second for taking readings for the 133 shutter angle and prism?

Also does anyone know if the Switar prime 10mm and zoom 16-100mm are marked in F-stops or T-Stops? F-stops right?

I have a Sekonic L-508, which is the little brother of your 608, and unless it's the cine edition of the meter, then you can't actually change the shutter angle on it. The only thing you can do is adjust the ISO on the meter to compensate for the shutter angle difference, since all readings are based on 180 degrees, and even when you do this, you probably won't be able to get it exact.
