"How'd I screw up? Exposures off as zoom in"

First, I'm an old-timer when we used this thing call film! My old FTn was simple: focus, turn on meter, match needle, use judgment to adjust and press the button! With Kodachrome 10, later 25!

Anyway, I've had my new D800E about a month. Had delivered new 24-70mm AF-S f/2.8G ED Nikkor about 2 weeks ago. In 24 mm position, exposures are perfect! As I zoom up to 70 mm, images are wildly overexposed, up to 5 stops although the EV stays constant!

I've set up shooting profiles and Custom profiles, nothing radical and largely following advice from Darrell Young's "Mastering..."

Is there a problem with the camera? The lens? My profiles? My inexperience with this camera? I've been using a D80 and D200 for many years, so digital is not new. But this computer with interchangeable lenses is definitely not my father's Argus C3!

I plan to run some tests with the other lenses I have (1 FX and 2 DX lenses) today, so we'll see how that goes.

Thank you!
