Miklar, it's sensor related issue. See photo #9 and others in this post:
And confirmed that it's sensor relevant shooting same stuff with Zeiss ZE-series 1.4/35, see photos named "Flare1", Flare2", Flare3", Flare4", Flare5", Flare6" and Flare7"
More experienced Sony shooters have told to me that it's been similar already on NEX cameras.
I have see the ghosting on Nex-7 (your #9-10) with RF lenses, and it doesn't bother me as much, however what bothers me more is I have bizarre edge flares as in your #11. I do a lot of night time photography and unless I'm super careful, these long drawn flares show up. This kind of artifact I have not seen on Nex-7, and I've now repeatedly tried to replicate it under identical conditions. It's possible APS-C sensor is not wide enough to induce this type of edge glare.
its this stuff, on top right, the bright orange flare from a light just outside the frame, is something I have never seen on Nex-7 and I shot plenty of night scenes with it.
My concern was I am being unfair to A7/R since I'm testing it with non-native glass. For excellent IQ that I get out of the camera, I'd rather buy native if it eliminates the flares. Sadly it seems it does not.
I have until end of January to return the camera, but I am not sure what else I try, if the flare is related to sensor topping.
