I am using an Olympus OM-D E-M1 II and I find that the jpegs it produces are oversaturated. I tried using the "natural" and "muted" picture settings (see below) and it did not have much effect, still oversaturated.

Anything I can do here to get more natural saturation levels, or am I stuck with post processing?


All of this is of course a matter of taste; I also usually find the built-in tone curves (or "Picture Settings" or whatever) to be a bit over-saturated. Fortunately, Olympus offers quite a bit of control over this; in addition to starting with "Natural" or "Muted", you can also reduce the Saturation setting (page 63 in the manual). This setting is stored separately per mode, so you can make Muted even more muted while leaving Natural alone, if you like.

You may also want to play with Contrast and Highlight & Shadow to find settings more to your liking.
