After 40+ years of photography I know enough not to shoot f/22 into the sun (or anywhere else) for any reason except flat experimentation, which is all I was doing here. I appreciate comments regarding the spots and the odd rainbow effect, which I'd heard about with the A7 but not with the NEX6.

Samples I have seen show NEX 6 performance is more like A7 then A7R in this regard.

The A7 got a lot of negative publicity on it as people are probably being more critical of the sensor.  The A7R doesn't seem to do it near as much.

I imagine it is related to sensor coverings used.
