Olympus Colours - 12 megapixel vs 16 megapixel

I used to love the colours in my 12 megapixel E-P1. I have two Olympus bodies now - a 16 megapixel EM10-II and a 20 megapixel EM1-II. Superb colours, of course, but - to my eyes - not quite as good as my old E-P1.

Now that the price is peanuts, I'm considering rebuying an old 12 megapixel body so that I can rediscover those old colours. So my question is - for people who have shot using E-P1 and E-P3 - are the colours the same? Ideally I'd like to buy a P3 because of it's superior LCD screen and high ISO performance. But if it means missing out on those beautiful E-P1 colours I'll buy a P2 instead - simply because it's the oldest model that supports my VF-4 (which I find essential for shooting in bright sunlight.)

Any thoughts? I think the P3 is basically the same as the PL3 so I guess the question applies equally to the PL1 vs the PL3.
