Here's one representative sample comparison. Trust me, I did several, but I'm not going to post them all:

The one on the right is hideous.

The one on the left may be slightly too pink but in any case it is pleasant.

Go with the camera that took the photo on the left.

The camera for the right photo needs some serious tweaking! Maybe some serious tweakers have a jpeg profile to advise?

I have a friend who uses his Nikon D7000 in Auto for family photos : every single comparison shows my Olympuses making nicer out-of-camera Jpegs, despite me using the oldest Pens.

In my view, Oly does warm up stuff just a touch more than I like. Can you pull the red and yellow down just a tiny bit in camera? Or maybe pull saturation down just a little. I can't remember, as I am now shooting with a Panny G6 which does offer this facility (but its "Standard" balance is just a touch cool and I have moved red up just a little -- you might find it perfect).
