Weird Colors in Tungsten

Hello,

Just received my Inspire 2 with X5S.  Has anyone else noticed the oversaturated wonky colors when filming with tungsten?  The lighting levels are low but my GH4 reads the colors accurately.  Thought they were supposed to have the same (or similar) sensors.  It's really unuseable.  This happens when recording to the microSD using h.264 or h.2.65 using any gamma or color profile with the exeption of DLOG.  

My SSD arrives on Tuesday so I'll do some more testing using ProRes and DNG but just wanted to see if this is "normal" across the entire X5S line or if I have a faulty camera.  

Thanks.

UPDATE!

Upon further testing, it appears the camera is sensitive to some fluorescent bulbs.  I replaced the fluoro-bulbs with modern bulbs and the colors improved.  Still had to adjust Kelvin to 2700 to see something that resembled real life but it was a major improvement.  Strange the GH4 read all the bulbs accurately.
