Country/Region of Manufacture:




Up for sale is a Sekonic L-558 DualMaster Light Meter. The first multi-function light meter to offer a 1° spot meter that measures reflected flash output down to an amazing f/2.0 (ISO100). 

People may be more familiar with the L-758r, since it is Sekonic's current model. Actually, L-558r is almost identical with L-758r in light metering for far less money. Quote from FM forum" According to Danny Cirillo at Sekonic (Mamiya America Corportation), the L-758DR and the L-558R are, as far as light metering is concerned, exactly the same. To verify this, simply visit the Sekonic website, open two windows in your browser, and pull up the Specifications of each meter, and view them side by side. The metering specs are identical." Thus, Sekonic L-558r has the best bang for the buck among Sekonic's high-end multi-function light meters.

The unit has been lightly used but in Excellent condition. Shows very little signs of wear. There may be one or two very light, barely noticeable scratches/marks on the body. See photos above.
