Purple flare

As I am now on my phone, can't comment on the posted images.

Regarding purple flare, if you like it, you could get it easily, infact a lot, from shooting with an Olympus M43 camera and a Panasonic 7~14mm f/4 ultra wide angle lens... 🙃

This example of Olympus camera & that particular Panasonic lens is not a lens issue, but purely on the different policy of UV cutting (Olympus uses lens coating whereas Panasonic uses stronger UV filter on sensor) only.

Generally one of the factors to classify a high quality lens is the flare resistance power. That purple flare indeed is sort of flare, so a good lens should be able to reduce it by special lens coating. Therefore generally the lens on ZS15 is not good as that one on FZ300 if judging on the flare resisting power. 😀
