I'm using CS5. But it seems to me that the colours are similar in the jpegs too and that the E-M1 is very different in colour cast from the E-M5.

CS5 doesn't support raw files from the EM-1 when I try to open an EM-1 file I get the following response from CS5:

"Could not complete your request because the file appears to be from a camera model which is not supported by the installed version of Camera Raw.

Please visit the Camera Raw help documentation for additional information."

Using the EM-1 raw file that Donald Chin was kind enough to provide I was able to open it with Photoshop CC. There were no unusual casts or color aberrations that I could find. The uniform colors of the foremost soccer player ( orange and red ), were out of gamut for sRGB, but that can be considered normal since the ACR color space is set to ProPhoto. The out of gamma colors were easily isolated and adjusted in photoshop. I did not notice any obviously different color casts from my E-M5 files.
