Pentax DSLR vs Ricoh GR jpegs

I was wondering lately about the jpeg processing on Pentax and Ricoh cameras.

Does anyone know if the newer Pentax DSLRs use the same processing and presets as the Ricoh GR series?

I find the jpeg on my KP  barely okay, really just the "natural" setting with some corrections seems to do a good job, most other presets need post processing to look good. When I see pictures from the Ricoh GR they seem to have better colors and contrast than pictures from Pentax, although I'm not sure if that is due to better technique, post processing or simply a better jpeg engine on the GR.

I'd appreciate if anyone has more knowledge on this and could share
