best solution? if you get more purple flare than you want?

buy a panny body if you want the 7-14 more than the Oly body.

buy the Oly 9-18 if you want to keep the Oly body more than the 7-14.

that's my solution.

The problem with that solution is that any lens, including the 9-18, can give rise to purple flare on the E-M5 (and perhaps other Oly bodies). See here with respect to the 9-18, although the purple illustrations have regrettably been removed:


In general though, I think the present thread is of greater interest for those who want to understand what's going on irrespective of how much of a practical solution it provides.
