Sony A7 "whithe Orbs" (or blooming ) problem...any news from sony?
May 7, 2014

Hi to everyone.

I'm going to buy a Sony A7 or A7r with my preference going to the A7 becase i wanted to use it with wide angle legacy glasses and as you know the a7r has problems with magenta color casts with leica glasses. But i was reading an old thread about "white orbs" reflections in the A7 sensor( here the link to the thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52986111  ) ....and since than i saw that problem appearing almost in every shot i see in flickr in dim light with source lights in. You can see that problem showing up also in pictures taken from famous reviewers... (Steve Huff for example and even Dp review has  one picture when you can see it). I have a sony RX1 that i love and it's supposed to have the same sensor but is problem free..

The bug is not acceptable to me because i often shoot in very dim light with strong light sources inside the frame, so, there are any news by Sony?

Anyone has a camera free from that problem?

Thx in advance.
