SB910/D800E flash exposure comp woes..

Just wanted to see if anyone else has encountered this-

Having just made the switch from D3x and SB800 to D800E and SB910, Ive run into an issue using flash compensation on the SB910, in TTL BL FP mode, and TTL BL mode.

Essentially I am used to shooting outdoor portraits and dialing the flash down between 2 and 3 stops to that I am just getting a catch light in the eyes.

With the SB910, even dialed to "-3", I can see almost no difference from the "0", or "+3"...

I am shooting at ISO 100 usually, so it isnt a case of minimal flash still being too powerful for thr ISO setting, I am at a loss.

Any thoughts?
