Pentax K-30 & Metz 58 AF1 exposure inconsistencies

Anyone else noticed this? I feel like I'm getting inconsistent exposures when bouncing the flash, compared to my K-01 body

K-01 to compare

I'm also a bit frustrated the k30 images aren't popping vs the k-01, even when I raw process. Colours don't seem as vibrant, which is dead weird as I thought it was the same sensor & processing engine.

Starting to wonder if I should chop in the K30 for a K5ii

Any thoughts/experiences anyone? I should probably add that the examples above I tried not to pick the worst of the k30, but the keeper rate in the k01 out of many photos was much higher

Same lens and same flash ? It would impossilbe to comment unless you did test the two cameras with same lens and flash, preferably with same camera settings.

You are right, I'm working on laws of averages here. I'll see if I can setup some type of repeatable test with the Tamron and see how I go.
