I just got my GX7, and while the raws look fantastic, my jpeg/video output, no matter what settings I have, seem to look... pale; sort of nauseous. I'm not even sure how to describe it. I've changed the highlight/shadow settings, contrast, picture profile, etc, and they still look really unnatural. Can anyone help me out? I can include more images if needed.

Absolutely right, those Jpegs are shocking.
Factory reset! ASAP.
I don't know the name of the function, could be "reset to defaults" or something.
Do it.

Report back.

Just factory reset, and updated to 1.3 firmware, neither did anything, and it happens in all PASM modes, as well as video. It's not an art filter or whatever, (sadly) and the flicker reduction isn't enabled.

Well, the first picture looks like it was shot through a window. And that could account for the washed out look.
The second picture doesn't really look that bad. There's not a lot of contrast, but it's not terrible.
Any chance there are smudges on the rear lens element?

It deffinitly seems like a contrast related issue, and gets more noticeable with the highlight/shadows in a reverse s-curve, but it's still partially present all the time.
