If you take photos in manual mode, with night mode on, the results are good (first photo is without flash). You can even see the dust on my tv stand..

I hope it helped.. The modes were the same, Auto+Flash.

Flash bleed is NOT and will be NOT fixed by fw upgrade! Though it can be somewhat alleviated by lowering ISO, the original issue will still remain the same.

Once again, it IS a hardware issue made more apparent by bad camera settings!

So, unless Sony is gonna replace the back panel, the flash bleed will stay by our side forever -_-

PS: It's easily fixed by a permanent marker though: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2671795

Z1f has different back panel made from different material. It was confirmed that z1f is free from flash bleed issue (as well as from scratches) =)

Could you possibly post more test-photos with the flash on in a dark environment (as for example about the dark void sky at night - but nothing else close)?
I will try to do that when i got a chance.

No, it still gets a lot of scratches. Sony has put the same film on the back panel just like the one on the front.

Never had Z1f in my hands.
Z1 Compact have plastic back cover without film.
And just when you look at him on a rough way.. scratch
