D300: Frame-to-Frame exposure variations

I've recently acquired a D300 which was only slightly used - appears to be in pristine state. Coming from a D80 I expect some differences.

It may be me, but I've been notcing WIDE exposure variations, shot-to-shot when I make only a small compenstation (shoot Ap priority - adjust stops + - to adjust after viewing histo). I'll shoot a scene, look at the histo, do a 1/3 stop change and it will go to DRASTICLY under/over exposed. It has even happened tonight while shooting on a tripod.

Is this a known issue or is it just cockpit errors?
