... I also discover both Panasonic & Canon produce similar Soft-Natural-Jpeg photo, vs the more Vivid-super-color-saturated JPEG of Olympus & Nikon.

Throughout the years, I have observed that:

  • Olympus crowd share the same taste as Nikon crowds, and
  • Canon crowds share the same taste as Panasonic crowds

Here I would like to disagree. I have been a Nikon shooter for many years and jumped to DSLR boat since D70. Since then I had several semipro bodies. There're some differences in colour rendition, but was always disapointed with the "Canon colour" which seem too saturated, especially reds and blues. Since 2009 I have a GF1. Actually, I bought a second body soon after the 1st one. OOC jpgs had different rendition , but not so saturated as Oly. That's why I have chosen Pany in the first place. And one of reasonsin its time to choose Nikon over Canon.
