D800 Exposure issues?

Hi All,

I've had my D800 since new and loved it. Recently it starts to act a bit strongly (or randomly) with its metering system. I attached two couples of images to show what it was doing. The images are captured at the same time of the day and at the same scenes:

The comparison I:

DSC_3451 and DSC_3453 are used the same shutter speed and same aperture, and yet the latter one is about 1,5EV under-exposed.

The comparison II:

DSC_3467 was captured with 1/320-f/2.8 and DSC_3468 with 1/2000 -f/2.8. Yet the first image is much darker than the second one (correct exposed):

This happens quite often and ramdomly - and with different lenses.

Have any of you - D800 users experienced the same problem and do you think it's time that I should send my camera in to an authorised NIKON workshop for a check?

Thank you for your comments or advices.

Best regards, Pengzi
