Hi Roland, at a guess, if it is caused by a double internal reflection first off the micro-lens covering the sensors and then back off the surface of the last lens element, then, if the last element has a convex surface, it will magnify and distribute the spots with the spots furthest from the centre becoming more distorted since this reflection strike an oblique surface . . .

Yeah, maybe ...

But how do you explain that they always are red?

The only bright red reflection in the DP camera comes from the IR filter.

The IR filter is probably flat.
