Sensor damage on A7Riii?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I've had this guy since it came out and am well past the new-purchase-overworried phase. I recently got the 100-400 GM though (which is great), and have noticed a strange bright spot (large--not sure if it could be sensor reflection) in photo center when exaggerating edits in LR. I know these edits are not realistic, but they well demonstrate something that I can't explain that I simply hope is not permanent sensor damage. Primarily showing up at 400MM shooting towards the ocean with sunlight elsewhere, but not close to the frame. The spot always appears right at center and of the same size--which leads me to believe its internal and camera-related.

Any thoughts? 

Thanks!

My guess is the lens correction being applied to correct vignetting. It's not always perfect and when you push the results, it shows up. Try turning off lens corrections and see if that changes your result.
