A quick look through some Flickr photos shows that this flare/ghosting also occurs when using the Panasonic 7-14 with other Olympus bodies such as the E-P2 and E-P3.

Here is one good example. shot with an E-P3:

This is a non-issue.

Aim just about any lens at a light source and you'll get flaring. The 7-14mm may be a bit more prone to flare simply because of the extreme angle of view.

I LOVE my 7-14mm!

I agree that it is a non-issue.

Just offering evidence that the issue is not specific to the E-M5 as many have been claiming.
