When Finished shooting turn camera off and camera sounds like its taking 2 shots.

i have seen that, it's a bit unsettling...

All NEX cameras occasionally fire when being turned off, I don't see any reason A7* would be any different in that respect. It's nothing to worry about, they're just taking dark frames for dead pixel mapping.

This should be pretty uncommon, though, once in a month is typical for the APS-C bodies. If it happens on EVERY power-off, I suppose something strange might be going on.

I think this is actually part of the sequence for the automatic Sensor Cleaning function.  All of my Sony NEX (3, 5N, 7) and A7R have done this every time I turn them off.  It is louder/more apparent with the A7R than with the others, though.
