Yes, I remember we discussed that possibility. But that (reflections off the sensor, back on the rear element, and then back again) is not what I think is going on. Note that didn't use the 7-14 in this case. Also note that if you inspect the E-M5 sensor with your eyes, the reflections you see are redish and greenish, not purple (no real sign of blue).

It occurred to me that if one used a linear polarizer on the lens, it would automatically reduce reflections (from certain angles) off the sensor.  Is that what is in your images?
