In my opinion every body have different rendering. Yesterday I bought X-Rite color Passport as I want to have better color managment.

I agree! The K-1 is a new camera and there will be a period of time to adapt our workflow and settings to get the best out of it for our style of photography. This is something normal.

Is it just my imagination or do many K1 images have a "look" that's a bit different from any previous Pentax?
Could possibly be due to:

1. The K-1 has slightly different colour signature. I find it rather closer to the K-7, and different than K-3.

One example is the blue, which I find is rich and vibrant. The Pentax special K-1 site actually did mention that their engineers put in special care in the color output of the K-1, and they talked about blue, among other things if I recall. Don't know if they meant for ooc jpegs, or in the sensor response, or whatever.

2. For a given FOV, the pictures are (generally) being shot using a longer focal-length now than previously. Example, if on APS-C an FA31 was being used, on Full-frame an FA43 is now being used. The 31, being a wideangle focal length, would introduce some perspective distortion, which is natural. So although the FOV is the same, the shot from the 31 would, for example, slightly exaggerate converging/diverging lines, whereas the 43 would give the same FOV, but without any perspective exaggeration. This difference is perceivable in a shot.

3. Maybe a higher percentage of shots are being captured using older A, M lenses etc.? These old glass definitely have their own rendering character.

^ all of this, but especially number 2. I think this is one of the things that gives larger format photos their character, and is especially noticeable on MF shots.

Chromatic aberration.

Thanks for the feedback.

It's interersting to see the exposure difference between the single exposure and the PS shot Noel. The PS tone seems more dramatic and creates a more immersive image.

Hang on this is a misunderstanding right? Perspective and compression should be identical?

When the field of view is identical the perspective and compression is identical?

Switching lens/sensor combo for the same field view results in identical perspective.

Your pixel shift version is so much better than the normal version. Very nice indeed.

I was quite surprised how well it handled the water (non pixel shifted version is in my flickr stream)
