The color violet, any recent improvements? E-PL2 fail, iPhone win (!?)
1

My Olympus E-PL2 simply won't pick up violet. It renders violet flowers as a lovely blue. I was hoping there might be an improvement in later PLxx models or a firmware change. I see that the latest models still use the same sensor, which isn't encouraging.

What makes it worse is that the iPhone seems to have solved this problem. I was explaining to a friend the fascinating problem of violet versus purple, and how digital sensors can't detect true violet. To prove my point I whipped out the phone and took a pic of an artichoke flower ... hey presto, it came out all violet. What the heck.

ANSWER:
Olympus PEN E-PL2
