I think this is largely a failing of Panasonic here rather than CMOS sensors one general. Don’t have AR coated chips that mitigate this issue.

This thread among other posts from Sharkmelley and Freestar8n in other threads go pretty deep into calculating and proving where the reflections are occurring and how they’re being created.

This issue seems to largely be exclusively with this Panasonic sensor rather than a systemic issue with micro lens on CCD & CMOS sensors.
