Hasselblad XH adapter light leak
1

Hi,

Recently, I got a Hasselblad XH adapter for my X1D and HC 150mm lens.

However, while photographing mountains, I noticed solid light leaks on one side of the image rendering the images useless. As I suspected, covering the adapter connection with the lens with my hand solved it.

The lens and adapter seem visually flawless and lock nicely together.

I'm shocked that the Hasselblad build quality using an XH adapter could result in such strong light leaks. With a brief google search, I only found one similar mention on the Hasselblad forum without any reaction.

Is this a common problem with the Hasselblad XH adapter, or does it point to a defect on this particular piece?

Cheers,
