Iím pretty sure if this was a real problem, many commercial cameras would be affected.
The problem is that this particular Panasonic sensor doesnít have an AR coating on the cover glass so the reflections are coming from light bouncing between the micro lens and the cover glass. This is why there coming from 0.3-0.5mm above the sensor.

My understanding is that the only way to fix this would be to scrape off the cover glass without hitting the micro lens layer and installing a new cover glass with a AR coating on the sensor side of the glass.

The KAF-8300 ends up with something that looks like diffraction spikes caused by the micro lens.
