Canon EOS RP issue with EF Lenses on Canon Mount - Light Leak, Banding in sunlight??

Hoping someone in this forum can help me. I've searched the internet and I can't find anything. Not sure what's going on...

 

So I just picked up the Canon EOS RP and I'm using 2 different EF lenses on it in the Full Frame crop: Canon 50mm 1.8 EF and Canon 85mm 1.8 ultrasonic EF lens. I notice it most when I shoot outside with high shutter speed. Below are some photo examples of raws that I'm getting out of camera.

In direct sunlight... shooting at 1.8... with 1/4000 I'm getting weird banding issues... you can see two dark bars going vertically. it's sublte but very noticiable to me. There's also severe light leaks or tearing on the right side of the photo. They can be seen on both of these photos. Shot with both lenses. 

 

I have the lens mount secured properly as well as the lens. Part of the reason I got this camera was the added benefit of using EF lenses on it, I've also seen a number of youtubers and others who do use their EF lenses on these full frame cameras. But now I'm scared to shoot anything professional for fear of ruining the photos. 

 

Can anyone find a solution for me?? THANK YOU!

Are you using the silent electronic shutter?  Try some test photos using electronic shutter vs mechanical shutter.

The light leak seems like broken shutter.
