that this phenomenon, as I experienced, is common with Olympus image rendering. I have an Olympus OMD E-M5, and produces same rendering with skin. IMHO it is not just overcooked, but has a very strange 'posterization' effect too, which makes faces look 2D-ish. That's the most important reason why I want to sell it. Before I had a Panasonic (GF2) which produces milky-smooth skin rendering. And because it is a very important factor to me, I rebought the little Pana, and now I'm happy.

I would agree with that. In good light, the skin tone from my GH1 is much better than those from the Olympus. The problem with older Panasonic cameras is that in artificial light, its color tends to have a green tint that is unpleasant. However I think this problem has been greatly improved in GX7 and newer cameras.
