New Viltrox 56/1.4 and XH1 Problem

I took advantage of the 20 percent discount last week and bought the Viltrox 56/1.4 on amazon.

After mounting it to XH1 and turning on the power, the lens’s aperture blades are continuously opening and closing by itself ( Thus, making non-stop annoying noise).

It will only stop if I cover the lens or when I half-press the shutter.

This never happened to any of other Fujinon lenses.

As a reference, the lens did not demonstrate this odd behavior when it is used on the Fujifilm X-pro3 body.

Firmwares of the cameras are up to date.

Anyone experienced the same thing? Is this a known problem? Or it’s the lens I purchased is not working properly?

Thanks for any advice.
