Although both images are acceptable, I still find the Olympus version has too
much red in the skintones.  This becomes even more apparant with a fair skinned
subject (as my family happens to be).  Here's an example of what I mean.

Olympus Viewer 1.3: RAW+0.5EV, camera white balance:


C1 1.7: RAW+0.55EV, camera white balance:


The C1 version is much closer to the real-life colour than the Olympus one.
Maybe C1 just has a better colour profile than Olympus does.  I agree with you
about the artifacts, C1 does have slightly more artifacts than Olympus but
they are minimised if you use the "soft look" sharpening method.
