a7iii quality control

have gone through two a7iii shipped from amazon. both cameras have loose tilt screen assemblies that make a clicking sound (probably from the latch) when the screen is pressed near the top. both cameras also have a faint bit of light bleed or something running down the bottom half of the sides of the evf. it looks like the evf is not mounted precisely perpendicular to the mount. in other words, the bottom of the evf is slightly further away from your eye than the top.

anyone else notice these flaws with their a7iii?

debating on whether or not to try again or just live with it if they are all like this. or just a recent bad batch?

took a look at an a7ii in best buy and the tilt screen assembly on the demo model was rock solid. evf was fine also. best buy a7iii demo model had a loose tilt screen, but no annoying clicking sound. couldn't test the evf because the power was out. a7iii tilt screen felt flimsier in general than the a7ii, which surprised me.

thanks for any input.
