Re: Avoid A7, it has a broken sensor

Not only you get sensor reflections on third party lenses, but it also manifests on the Sony 24-70 ZA OSS lens as well.

Seems to me Sony rushed the camera out the door without thorough testing.

Fuji replaced all X10 sensors with the orb problem. I doubted Sony will do the same.

Thanks for the tip. Looks like it's a trouble with both cameras, more with the A7 and a bit less with the A7R. The reflections seem to appear when shooting into bright light sources and stopped down to f/8 or further.
