Any UWA directly shot into the sun will get you this effect. It's called lens flare. Buy a lens hood.

All shots were taken with the lens hood LH-55B

Well I wish you wouldn't call it the 9-18 Oly, but the Micro one. The original 4/3 9-18 flares less when shot against the Sun, as I can witness.

And so you might see less reflections of the sensor. (Is it due to better telecentricity?)

A hood helps, but if you do want to include the sun in the picture, than a ND filter might solve the issue.

Am.
