Re: more about DR and Contrast than settings

Actually by quality JPG out of the camera I am looking for sharpness, DR, contrast and saturation. Not worried too much about hue and such and in camera settings.

Jpeg, straight out of camera is a personal thing. Every manufacturer "cooks" jpeg with varying settings. Most people  (and I agree) think Olympus does this best. To my taste, I always think Oly cranks up the sharpness a little more than anyone else. Looks great at normal sizes but can start to come apart at bigger sizes. Not a problem for Oly (or the competing cameras) because this is something you can adjust to taste on your settings. Just don't confuse jpegs with the actual inherent quality of the images. But as your question is regarding straight out of the camera, I assume at flat settings, for mine the answer is Oly.
