Re: A7R has similar issue w/FE35

This issue is not just on the A7. I've seen it on A7R, though only when shooting direct into sun with a lot of snow. Here is an example taken at F20, though I still at issues as low as f7.1, just not as pronounced.

For me it's not an issue - I've taken more than 1,000 shots and this is the only time I've seen an issue with this combo.


Nex-6 with 10-18mm produces exactly the same green/red blobs around the sun. i see them all the time but i have never thought about it to be a "fault" either, just ordinary flares.

Photography for me is not about recreating what i saw through
the viewfinder but to show people the way i want to see the world
