Re: Steps to test for this

After more fiddling I arrived at the simplest way to reproduce the problem:

  1. Set the camera to aperture priority and set the aperture wide open.
  2. Set ISO to 200.
  3. Point the camera at a sheet of paper or a wall or any uniform surface, doesn't matter if the focus is spot on or completely off.
  4. Take a few shots with exposure compensation set somewhere in the range of -2 to 03 EV.

The rings are visible on the camera's screen. As far as I can tell, camera settings do not affect the result.

And now that I know exactly what to look for, I can actually see it in live view.

As I already wrote couple of times, I assume the unit I got is defective and will pay a visit to the store tomorrow. But it would still be nice to hear from other users.

Did that. With my EM1.2 & PL 100-300II I am seeing a faint large circle that is warmer/brighter in the middle with some fall off towards the edges/corners. Basically seeing what I would expect to see with any camera under those shooting circumstances. I am not seeing the concentric rainbow effect in the images you have posted.
