You are a just party pooper. Sony probably get a lot of cameras returned because there is nothing wrong with them so they are just not any fun to play with.

If the light was leaking through the mount, then wouldn't your second shot be identical to the first?

As both shots came out very differently, it seems to me that the first was light leaking through the lens cap and second was light leaking through the body cap.

I'm quite puzzled why people seem to think the e-mount lens caps are an effective way to keep out 100% of the light when conducting these tests - they are designed to protect the front of the lens when it is not in use, but they are not designed as a light seal.
