For both images, I prefer the Olympus output, I gave a blind test to my wife 
and she prefer the same. I think it is a matter of preference, monitor 
calibration could be one of the reasons but with the latest LCD I don't see 
it a big problem. My company's cheap 17" LCD just render very close to my 
mid-range EIZO except less bright even at max setting. I even merge the four 
images and printed on HP photo paper (with some brightness/contrast 
adjustment), my wife gave me the same answer,

Since we are seeing quite differently, it is still a mystery.
