Re: How about purple orbs ?

Are you saying that you can get the same kind of flare on the GF1 except that in this case, there would be little or no purple? If so, I would guess that the purpleness in this case too is due to the phenomena I have tried to describe. If I am right, the reason why some of the orbs are purple and some not would be that the angle of incidence of the light that produces the orbs on the sensor varies depending on which orb we are talking about.

I am talking about totally saturated orbs like the one on top left of the frame. I have no such orbs on similar photos taken with my GF1 (and same lens, 7-14mm), i do have flare though, but not these orbs which look like you used a circle brush tool in photoshop with 100% opacity and sharpness. I have other, even more obvious examples of these which i'll provide if you want.
