The famous 20.7 MP Sony G lens on the Sony Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact has been found to suffer from an issue called Pink Spot. Users who encountered the problem noted that the issue occurs when the white balance and exposure are tweaked or when capturing images under low light conditions.

According to the official forum of Sony Mobile, there is no exact explanation yet on what causes the spots.
