Is there any reason why a brand-new light meter would give good results under ambient daylight, but recommend readings that yield flash exposures that are two and two-thirds stops overexposed? It's a Sekonic L-478DR, and I'm using it with SB-800s, a D700 and Pocket Wizard TT5s. And yes, I have purchased Sekonic's ridiculously expensive exposure calibration target and did an exposure profile on the D700.

Is there such a thing as getting a light meter "lemon?"
