k-5 vs k-7 color accuracy

How do you compare color accuracy of k-5 & k-7 at low ISO?

No scientific comparison, but I think it's more accurate than my k-7. The skin tones used to be a bit too red, the lips a bit purple with the k-7. So I used a X-Rite ColorChecker Classic and Adobe's DNG profile editor to create a default profile I used in Lightroom.
I haven't done it for the k-5 yet, as the colors seem a lot more pleasant straight from the camera to me.
