A7RII & 24-70 GM - what on earth are these in my photo??
1

So, I've started to have issues with my A7Rii.  It seems to change the settings in Manual Mode by itself. When it actually dangles and I bring it up back to my eye, the settings have changed (shutter speed). I change them back, put the camera back up to my eye, and they change again. I changed the dials (switched the shutter/aperture dials) then the aperture started to change on it's own.

Anyway, I've been trying to get a break between jobs to send it in.  Had another wedding and something really strange happened.  For the first 2 hrs of shooting, the camera was fine. Then during ceremony, THIS happened!!!  Look at those two black areas (upper right, lower left)!!!!  I didn't change the lens.  It just started to happen.  This was my 24-70 GM lens.  Turned cam off, back on, same issue.  Took lens off, put it back on, same issue.

Figured, I'll just crop and I also had my a6500 as backup so wasn't TOO worried, but it defenetly concerned me.  Then, ceremony over.. take a little break (15 min), started shooting again and those black areas went away.  I didn't change anything!  Haven't seen them sense. 2 1hr shoots after that wedding and haven't seen them.

FYI: the black areas did go out of frame when I zoomed in from 24.  Not sure how much, I didn't notice.  So, it was something only seen at 24 and a little above.  But what is that? Anyone know??
