Re: A7/A7R Light leaks reported + White Orbs issue?

Unfortunately, I have the "light leak" problem with my A7r. I tested both my Zeiss 55mm f1.8 and the 35mm f2.8 and they both exhibit the problem:

This one is with the 55mm wherein I used a flashlight and shined it completely around the lens mount.

FE 55mm  f1.8, ISO 25600 and 20 second exposure

For this one everything was the same except I just shined the light at the 3 o'clock position.

FE 55mm f1.8, ISO 25600 and 20 second exposure

This was with the FE 35mm f2.8, but just illuminating at the 3 o'clock position

FE 35mm f2.8, ISO 25600 and 20 second exposure

This last one is without illuminating the lens mount but exposing in a room with normal "low" light levels

FE 35mm f2.8, ISO 25600 and 20 second exposure, but in normal, low level room light

Looks like this camera is going back to Sony.
