    i think... you shouldn't mention that you used a 3rd party lens? just say that you just want to check if there's anything wrong with your camera.. especially the sensor.. don't mention anything about pointing it at the sun?

    not to be dishonest but just to ascertain whether there's any fault. and after that, if you wanna go on about the melting incident or not, that i can't advise hahaha....

    ic ic. Hopefully they will take it in without asking too much questions... Making a story to tell is a pain in the ass

    erm... melting incident? What's that? Oh, you mean global warming is it? Lol

    NSC staff: 'why is there a melted marks?'

    TS: 'donno? It just melts, can cover warranty right?'

    NSC staff: '...'

    can't imagine how the staff will react.
    Hope they can buy the idea and replace it at no cost. Good luck TS!

    Bro, not the Lens service centre. kei1309 is advicing me to bring my cam body for inspection in case the sensor is somehow damaged.

    I also don't know how to lie my way through with that kind of obvious marks
    And I think the only way they will replace for free is if I create a scene and make a fool of myself there

    That's the advantage of EVF, no actual sunlight coming from it.

    If you bring it to Sony, they'll ask you what's wrong and to show it to them. If you can't find a fault with your cam body, they won't do anything.

    I think sensor not damaged, unless you used it for video/Live View. Eg during operation the aperture blades open. Anyway that's easy to check what.

    Laser light can damage your sensor, you get lines in the picture etc....
