Have you noticed changes to OCP inks?

I bought my first OCP inks for my Canon Pro9000II in May 2012 then bought the next batch in Sept 2013. I had run out of yellow and bought the whole set of 8 because the minimum order is $30. I just recently got around to opening the rest of the colors and found them to be really different from the first set I bought. I did swab comparisons of all the colors; the red and yellow are the most different. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed such a difference, or if you've only bought OCP inks once, which one does yours look like?
The top photo is red, new one on the left, old one on the right. The other is yellow, new one on the left, old one on the right.
I've spoken to r-jettek, they're sending me new inks. Can't wait to see how they compare.

Any resolution? I have a pro100 on order and was looking into ink suppliers. Should I avoid OCP?

You’ll have no choice in the matter, OCP don’t make ink for the Pro 100 printer.

If you’re serious about matching colours after you have run out of your OEM ink then the only other good inks that are available for your printer are from Image Specialists (US) and Sudhaus Germany.
