I love Leica

If you have the means, more power to ya!

So it looks like the issue with the A7 also happens at telephoto lengths, and the worst situation is point sources at night. (The reflection of my snoot light on the illuminated subject not being quite drastic enough to cause a problem.)

I've been able to reproduce it with direct midday sunlight, something I typically avoid anyhow. Also, when the sun is directly in the frame, you tend to get additional multi-colored flare/ghosting.
