I'm not sure what to make of this so far. One thing I found interesting is the "blue ball" is back...you can see it centered on this example:

Bummer!

Disappointing, but it does seem to be reduced. The new coating on the sensor itself has obviously helped as intended, but not a cure. Clearly this isn't 'lens flair' as some erroneously claim.

I would be very curious to know if this is scientifically recreatable. For example one TG-5 user said it was simple to recreate...take a picture at full zoom and at a 45 degree angle to the sun. If we were to know precisely when this happened we could take measures to prevent it.

While not lens flare, it may be a variant. There are so many internal lens in this camera that I could see odd reflections bouncing around in just the right circumstances.

If it is some type of incidental light, then some type of lens hood may help.
