I ran the same test with my NEX-7 and got no leaks. While I might be able to correct the problem using the methods you describe, the camera should be light tight as shipped. It will be going back.

John, I can replicate just what you got on my A7R.  When I drop the ISO or cover gap (with rubber band for quick test) it goes away.

Does anyone know if this will matter for most shooting or just very specific shooting situations?  I was blissfully unaware of this prior to this thread, and I'm thinking it's something I never would have known about if I had no read about it here.
