Because of the very specific hue produced, and because you could block them with a color filter, at least this is what i think, otherwise i would see fully clipped orbs on my GF1 too.

OK. But then you haven't fully understood my explanation. I didn't block the reflections with a color filter. I used the filter to reduce the color-channel imbalance that I talk about in this post:


The reflections appear purple not because they actually have that color if you could see them with your naked eye but because of the sensor characteristics I describe in the post I link to (color-channel pollution along with color-channel imbalance).
