Re: How about purple orbs ?

I have a multi colored spot on the GF1 too but it is less saturated, and more transparent. Also the GF1 doesnt show any kind of clipped orb like the one i see on the OMD.

More example of clipped color orbs (first one is a crop, others have to be seen in original size):

Never had such a problem with the GF1, here are examples taken exactly at the same spot with same conditions (and the same lens, still 7-14mm):

As you can see the flares are still there, but no orbs...

Thanks. Yes, I would be inclined to say that the intense purple blobs we see in the E-M5 shots but not those from the GF1 are due to the same phenomenon as the one discussed in the rest of this thread.
