The reason being that they are clearly focussed and detailed and always purple - using my GF2 they are just normal flare.

When digital SLRs first came out you had either green or purple elements like this quite a lot when using non-digital optimised lenses - I think Sigma actually digitally optimised their lenses by adding a coating to their rear element just to cut this kind of thing down.
