But the question here is: why doesn't it happen on the PL1, and why on the PL2?

What was changed?

I know nothing about the PL1.

For what it's worth, I've been taking pictures (with E-PL1) of my Xmas tree before throwing it away just a couple of days ago. There were no other light sources but tiny lights on the tree itself. It does not get any more "point source" as these. Took a couple with Zuiko 14-42 stopped down as well and there was nothing similar.

Of course, that does not rule out the possibility that the effect would manifest itself if I stopped down more. It's always easier to confirm the effect than rule it out completely.

As for practical importance of these problem on E-PL2, for most users it all hinges on whether you can stop down your lenses without the effect kicking it or not. Kit lens is the most important, of course, as most people will be shooting with it.
