Got my new MX-1, is this normal?

So far I am really happy with the MX-1 but I got a couple of pictures with the following. The setting sun was shining through the trees, is this a normal response from this sensor, I was shooting raw.

That's lens flare, but it's strange that it's so saturated, unless you've got the colors cranked-up in camera. If you can consistently reproduce it with default settings, I'd get the camera exchanged.
