An easy fix for the light leak is to use a hair tie. Get the Goody ouchless no metal hair elastic. I wrote a short post on it with links and a before/after shot on my blog.

this is a good easy solution to the problem, until Sony recognizes it and applies warranty repair option. I wonder if the NEX series camera have any issues with light leakages like this!!

Just did a test with my NEX 5r, and the output is noisy, but there is no light leakage. This is with an EF-NEX speedbooster with an EF lens attached with lens cap on

It probably makes sense to put the same lens, booster and lens cap on the A7 and test the same way. In other words, reduce variables to one.
