Are we looking at the same images? I don't see anything washed out about the GX7 shots. They appear to have slightly more exposure than the EP5 shots, but there's still plenty of highlight detail.

If you mean they're slightly less saturated, that's probably true. Olympus tunes it's JPEG engine for unnaturally saturated results, Panasonic for more realistic results. Saturation is adjustable in both cameras, though, so you can turn you Panasonic jpegs into cartoon circus shots if you want, or set your Oly to nearly no color at all.

I second that

I have done extensive comparison using the new studio scene DPR tool. For me the GX7 tones are more natural.

I have ordered the GX7. I hope to recieve it at the end of the week, or the next week.
