Ken,

I'm not sure what bearing this has on your last comment about RAW 
converters, but I will offer it anyway.  I have never loaded Olympus 
software on my computer.  I shoot RAW, and rely on the ACR converter 
contained in Elements 6.0 to do the conversion.  With the E-1, I had no real 
trouble with purples, but, using the same program with the E-510, I do 
recall purple flowers showing up as blue, no matter what I tried to do to 
correct it.
