Panasonic 8mm MAJOR PROBLEMS!

I've been shoot professionally with Panasonic for 6 years, a couple of moths ago I purchased the Panasonic 8mm (I've owned the Olympus 8 mm since 2008 and have been using that succesfully on my GH1 since 2009 with upto date firmware)...
When I use the Pansonic 8mm in mixed lighting conditions or high contrast situations especially when there are large amounts of one colour it TOTALLY,TOTALLY,TOTALLY MUCKS UP THE COLOUR RENDITION image no 2 has the blue channel missing!!!!! can't be fixed :-[
image no 4 the dresses are supposed to be purple not black!!!!! can't be fixed :-[
This problem has NEVER happened when using the Olympus 8mm.

accurate white balance taken with a Panasonic L10 and Leica 25mm (before proofing)

taken within same minute on a GH1 with 8mm no blue channel,can not be fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes the bridesmaids dresses are accurately purple using Panasonic L10 and Leica 25mm :-]

GH1 and Panasonic 8mm - bridesmaids dresses have been turned jet black, can't be fixed!!!

any ideas???
