New Nikor 50mm f1.8 S lens issue (!!!)

I just took delivery of a new Nikkor 50mm f1.8 S lens and have something very disquieting going on with it.

On both my Z50 and my Z7ii, the electronic viewfinder is exceedingly jittery with this lens. When you pan the view skips and jumps around instead of flowing fluidly as it's supposed to.

Both cameras have up to date firmware as does the lens (which is version 1.01 and which hasn't been updated since June 2019, anyway).

After all the anticipation this has me shook to the core. I mounted the lens with the VR off so I doubt that has anything to do with it but this IS my only Z mount prime lens and my only Z lens with an on/off VR switch.

Has anyone run into this before?
