X-Rite profiles for K-1ii

I'm using ON1 to edit my photos. Unfortunately the built-in profiles for Pentax are atrocious. But ON1 has the possibility to import X-Rite color profiles. Unfortunately my search for such profiles yielded no results. Has someone of you an idea where I could get good X-Rite profiles for my K-1ii? (I'm ready to pay for them, if they are really good)

ON1 like any raw converter presumably gives you the maximum latitude to process your raw files as you wish. I fail to see why you would want to use a Pentax profile during this process. If you want to produce a Pentax profile from from your raw file there is a simple tool already available....the camera !

I am not an X-Rite user, but it is my understanding that you can use their software to create both ICC color profiles and DNG camera profiles.

I agree with both Peter and Steve.

Should you feel the need for a colour profile that more accurately portrays your camera / lens system then you will need to make your own with the aid of X -Rite Colourchecker Passport X-Rite: MSCCPP-B : ColorChecker Passport Photo 2.

Are you sure you are using the correct profile for your particular camera?
