High noise on Nikon 85mm 1.8G?

Guys and Gals,

I was very happy with the performance of my 50mm 1.8G on the D750, then decided to get the 85mm 1.8G to "elevate" things a bit on portrait sessions. I took the 85mm for a spin at a party I was covering yesterday and after the first shots I noticed noise.. So I loaded some NEFs to my laptop and confirmed: with the same light, same aperture, same ISO and same speeds the 50mm is borderline perfect and the 85mm shows some significant noise...

Is that "normal" or did I get a bad lens? maybe I am missing the math here...

Just a quick example:
