Interesting to see your photos, I have the same problem with mine.
I'll have to see if I can get it replaced I guess.

Somebody pointed out in another thread, this haze can be caused by a case, especially if you are using flash.

In my case, I have a clear gel case which could easily cause light to reflect into the lens area.
Will test properly tomorrow.

That's interesting, kinda like the flash bleed issues on z1 compacts I read about I guess.

Although in this case I wasn't using the flash on either of the Z2's and they were both naked, even took the screen protector off the back of the phones to make sure it wasn't being caused by those (I had cut a square out of them for the flash/lens already though) and there was no change - one Z2 looked fine, the other not so much.

Thing is if my sister hadn't picked up a Z2 of her own I'd never have known, I just thought this was normal behaviour - at least the thread has made others aware of a possible problem (if mine wasn't just a one off)

I got my replacement Z2, and it creaks A LOT. It's W19, it's going back to the store tomorrow. My first one has bad speaker quality (W28). If I get a third, I'm returning and I'm going to another phone. I shouldn't have to go through 3 Z2s to get a decent one, but if my third one has something wrong, I'm done. Sony has a GORGEOUS phone and an awesome build, but I can't stand this anymore. Last one tomorrow, and we'll see.

I've had the creaking from day one and hasn't affected the waterproofing or anything so I was just going to live with it, but now I've noticed the camera thing I'm going to try and get an exchange.
Hey,i have the exact same creaking issue!I thought i was the only one.I took it to the Service Center and the guy at the counter acknowledged the issue and said ill get a replacement and removed my sim card and memory card etc and only then i realized they cant provide a standby phone so i said ill come back later and submit the phone for replacement.

Later the SONY Store where i bought the phone from provided me a standby phone and they itself submitted my Z2 to the service center but few days later they returned the phone saying there isn't any issue :X i took it up with their customer care and they asked me to go to the service center again but i haven't got the time yet.
My batch number is 14W18,what is yours?
I checked some test pieces at the SONY Store and they had a similar issue but i checked again at another store and they seemed fine -_-

I have the same flash bleed issue on all the cases including the OEM ones provided by SONY.

ew..i have the creaking issue too.. its creaking when i put my finger below the flash..but nvm..1 more thing from me is that you guys better check if the glue that holds the circle sensor glass is melted.Because when i played Doungeon hunter 4 4/5 times the phone got extremely hot..and im seeing that the glue that holds the camera glass is abit not in plase spilling in the lense direction. and can couse a problens with the shots..
