Re: Lens fault, not sensors problem...

Just to add, this is a problem since the lens sits so close to the sensor. Even newer lenses do this to some degree (albeit much less). The Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 does this.

So maybe it is in part the sensor cover being overly reflective, but I don't think it is worse than any other short flange distance full frame mirrorless camera with CMOS sensor (hint, there is only 1 other). I can't for the life of me find any info about the new Leica M, since the name is too generic to search for to see if it is also an issue with it.

I imagine the same is visible from the NEX series cameras with these lenses?


Leica M Type 240 has no such problem.
