Sorry, I don't have this lens so I can't comment on the VC function, but the 1 stop EV difference could be present because of the vignetting wide open. I observe similar behaviour with my Nikkor 85G/1.8. When I stop down for example to f/4 the image is brighter compared when the lens was wide open. So it can be feature and not an issue Let others comment on this I will be interested too

I measured the brightness in the center of the frame, plus the DOF comparison I performed confirms that the aperture isn't properly stopping down between f/2.8 -> f/4.0
