I posted in Panasonic Camera section but I want to focus on the 7-14 lens discussion here.

I have been using my beloved 7-14 f4 on my E-M5 and EPL5 on every travel occasion, but the severe purple blob issue really drives me crazy sometimes. (I wouldn't want to explain the difference between normal flare vs serious purple blob happens to EM1, EM5 and GH3, if you don't know the difference, be adviced to take a look at these links and for references). For those of you lucky guys who own both the GH4 and the panny 7-14mm, any purple blob occurs like on EM1, as mild as on GX7, or completely avoided like on older Panasonic sensors? Thanks and appreciated

I tried the 7-14 f/4 on my GH3.
I did not notice any purple blobs.

What I did not like was the poor/low light performance.
That is why I sent mine back.
What I want is an f/2.8 or faster Lumix to match my 12-35 and 35-100.
