Sun Washes Out Front Camera?

Bottom image is pulling into a parking space at a McDonalds. Mid-day sun is hitting my windshield. Top image is after moving ahead a foot or so where the building is now blocking the sun.

I just recently got my car back from the body shop where they replaced the windshield (among many other parts). My question is, is this typical for a new Model 3 to look like this under some sun angles? Or did I get a dirty windshield? (It looks clean to me.) I would think that if this is true for all Teslas then (under the right conditions) it must play havoc when the software is trying to find that lane marker.

This is entirely typical. Or at the very least, this happens with my stock windshield and makes sense.

The camera and lenses are nothing spectacular, they do have some issues with direct sun (as most do).
