In your example the boy looks very very sick in the Nikon shot.

Maybe your monitor is tuned way too magenta and on your monitor the Nikon looks better. But then your monitor is basically tuned wrong AND your prints will look very different from your monitor.

The skin tones on the E-PM2 come out very different from the Nikon D7000 by default. See comparison below.

I'm able to correct the tones on the computer but does anybody know some quick settings to have them come out the same as the D7000 straight out of camera? The D7K tones are more natural, when compared to the subject next to the computer monitor.

Here's one representative sample comparison. Trust me, I did several, but I'm not going to post them all:
