Hello everyone, This phenomenon is real and observable in A7R too. Recently I rented A7r and native 35mm 2.8 Zeiss lens. Here is the sample

A7R with 35mm 2.8 @ f14

This completely ruined my photo. I believe you can see this reflections at f11.

Here is another shot with almost similar setting with A900 and Minolta 17-35 2.8-f4

A900 with Minolta 17-35 f2.8-4 @ f13

There are no sensor reflections here.

So, if you want sunstars, A7 and A7r are useless. I am really annoyed and it is a glaring QC issue. Didn't Sony test @ f13 with the 35mm lens. I can't believe it.

A7R is a landscape camera and you cannot shoot at f13 with wide lenses and with sun in the frame! Unbelievable.
