Hello all

I´ve been wondering for a while now with this problem

If I set my d700 to aperture (as I almost always is set) sometimes there are HUGE differences in two or more images while shooting a slow or fast burst (CL or CH)

At first I thought that it was me. then I started being more careful, then while reviewing some images a few moments ago, I found these two shots..

both shots are with the same settings, the same everything, but for two things, first, the focal length is a slight wider in the slower, thus brighter one shot at 18mm and the first one shot around 30 seconds earlier was shot at 24mm

why does the metering unit takes a so wide range when the metering is set to spot and the spot it is "looking" at is not changing that much? (at least to my eyes)

any help...appreciated...
here are the images
