Metering depends on a number of parameters, position of exit pupil and lens contrast transfer being some of these. Thus setting individual corrections for particular lenses is not unheard of.

At a chance to play a little bit with the 85/2.  Bitter cold, so wasnt out long.
What stop was this shot at?  Have you played with the Nikkor 85/2 wide open vs. slightly stopped down?

Used at f/2 thought f/4.  The sample 85mm shot was f/2.8.
