Re: A7 No White Orbs issue?

From the linked thread a gather that some [but not all] users can reproduce a flare like issue with colored [blue and or green) circles appearing near an intense (blown out?) light source (street light, sun). As far as I've seen it has so far not been observed with the A7r, leading to speculation that it may have to do with differences in the sensor stack.

It seems different IMO from the white orbs seen with some Fuji Xtrans sensors which was a form of blooming. That AFAIK has not been shown with the Sony.

Fuji X10 issue re-visited?

Well this guy reported it with his A7, and the question is, was the only one, or are there others, and how many? Strangely the thread was cut short after less than 100 messages: What's going on?

"Sorry for my English! Sony A7 has this serious problem, you can also check it by clicking F8 to F22. We must point out the problem to Sony who can help me?"
