I tested for the leak using a new (3 days old) Sony FE 23-70mm lens and covered the front of the lens to assure that no light was entering through the glass or the front portion.  Since all of the leaks are reported to be in the same location, i.e. the upper right quadrant of the image, which is where it was located in my case, the leak has to be a defect in manufacture of the lens mount on the camera body and not a problem with any part of the lens (or any adapter---I didn't need an adapter anyway).  The light leak is not readily apparent in most normal shooting conditions, it is latent. Nevertheless it is clearly a significant defect that should be responsibly dealt with by Sony and considered serious by ILCE owners and prospective owners.
