Oly E-P2 in China, mixed emotions

Hi all,

last year I took for my 1st trip to China Oly E-3 - was somehow satisfied with the results.

This year I took Oly E-P2 (relatively new to me) w. Pany 14 and 20 primes, mZD 40-150 and ZD 50/2.0 w. MMF-2. I decided to shoot JPEG because I am using C1.4 and C1.6 Express and I used the last one to PP the JPEGs (the biggest problem here was the automatic WB).

The results are less satisfactory, somehow flat, pale colors, blown highligts ... for example quick and dirty PP here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1859415809905.2100780.1376217657&l=17767eaf52

or here http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1859382929083.2100777.1376217657&l=ccc577797b

Of course, the typical Chinese light was not always good, I am not so familiar with PEN like with E-x ... maybe Pany lenses are not so good on Oly bodies, decision shoot JPEG and use C1 might be seen as problematic ... any other clues from experienced m4/3 users?

THX, good shooting
