A7 mount defect?

I was playing with my A7 and noticed something somewhat unsettling.

I understand that the e mount rocks( lightly) for several people , mine included, when pressed on the 3 and 9 o'clock position.

What I find strange is that I see more of the silver metal on the grip side( 9 o'clock) then the 3 o'clock position... see photos. Pardon my rudimentary measuring tool. there is an obvious discrepancy between the 2 sides.

small ring side

large ring side (gripside)

The top and bottom of the camera seem fairly even.

I guess my lenses end up being mounted with a left tilt...

I imagine that if the mounting plane and the sensor are not in the same plane, the the image is affected.

Can other owners please check?
