Re: A7/A7R Light leaks reported + White Orbs issue?

A key question is whether the design of the camera lens mount is defective, so that all A7 and A7r cameras exhibit the light leak or whether there was a defectiive batch (or several defective batches). Putting it in a more practical context, if I can return the camera in an exchange, am I likely to just go to that substantial inconvenience and end up with a camera (after a delay of some weeks for the retailer to process the return) that is no better than the one I returned?  Has anyone carefully tested their camera and found no leak or exchanged their defective camera and received a good one?
