Hasselblad X 45P lens

I own one of the above, plus the other 45, 65, 30 and 90.

On my 907x, the 45p is the quietest lens of all, both during focusing and when activating the shutter. Completely silent, in fact.

When fixed to my X1D mkII, the 45P, for some reason, becomes the noisiest, the shutter is louder and the motor driving the focus, sounds like an old 60’s Vespa.

Place it back on the 907x and, once again, it makes less noise than a Carmelite nun after compline.

I would assume that it was some sort of resonance within the X1D body but the other lenses are the same on both bodies.

Has anyone else noticed this. I would add that the noise isn’t a grating or injurious sound, just loud.
