Have you tested earlier cameras with this lens and gotten different results? I'm looking for something that rules out a lens problem or testing problem.

Which model of the Nikon 85mm lens are you using? The newest 85mm f/1.4 AF-S tests remarkably well across the entire frame but there is still some drop off toward the edges wide open. Other 85mm lenses show more pronounced drop off from center to edge. And if a lens element is very slightly misaligned, the edges can become much softer.
