Because of the very specific hue produced, and because you could block them with a color filter, at least this is what i think, otherwise i would see fully clipped orbs on my GF1 too.

Also many tests (like the blinds one, very obvious) show a clear reflection of a shaped light source, what i suspect is the coatings let this wavelength through, or another possibility is the rear element will reflect this wavelength to the sensor.
