A7 Sensor is just fine for most, A7R much better

See this thread:


Not only you get sensor reflections on third party lenses, but it also manifests on the Sony 24-70 ZA OSS lens as well.

Seems to me Sony rushed the camera out the door without thorough testing.

Fuji replaced all X10 sensors with the orb problem. I doubted Sony will do the same.

I agree it is an issue to be aware of, but the Sensor is not "Broken", it just doesn't work as well with strong light sources in the frame as some. I never even noticed this for 2 months and 4000 shots of shooting the A7 how I intended (shooting weddings, portraits, etc). I didn't notice until I did some shots with the sun directly in the frame (which generally don't turn out well anyway, and a little flare is usually fine in these situations).

Here is my comparison with the sun directly in the frame. Will add some street light shots later.
