E-M1.2 + Panny lenses, purple fringing?

A question to E-M1 Mark II owners. Does it improve the situation in regards to purple fringing with Panasonic lenses?

I just got myself a Leica 12mm f/1.4 and what I see on my E-M10 is rather worrisome (compared to GM5). Basically, purple fringing seems to be much more pronounced on Oly body. It's a real bummer for bright stars and nigh-time street shooting.

And I intended to use it for astro with E-M1 II which I plan to buy soon. But if it's gonna behave the same, that whole plan is in serious peril.

Any experiences with Panny lenses on E-M1.2 compared to older Oly bodies?

BTW, I will do a more rigorous testing in controlled environment on weekend to get a better understanding of the problem.
