Re: A7/A7R Light leaks reported + White Orbs issue?
In reply to Heaven is for real, 7 months ago

Unfortunately, the problem is real.  See my earlier post where I left some samples of photos taken with my 24-70 FE lens mounted on the camera with the lens cap and the lens case on. The lens case is made of a heavy vinyl material and has a substantial, padded bottom.  The leak, then, is around the flange between the lens and the camera and is evidently in the same place.  This is obviously a manufacturing defect.  Perhaps it was corrected or was only in some batches of the camera since it seems that not all A7s apparently have this defect, only a sufficient number to create a serious problem. Perhaps yours is okay, although you may want to test it out, since this defect has a real world consequence if you take a photo in low light with a timed shutter (I used 30 seconds).
