    I don't think those are different colorways, just some differences in how the pictures were posted. O-review only lists a single colorway like that; Matte Dark Amber / Tungsten Iridium Polarized SKU OO9246-05. There's no slightly darker variation.

    Those images are CGI anyway so your real-life experience may vary.

    It's possible whoever posted the darker version converted the original image from RGB to CMYK for whatever reason.

    Could be. Is it more likely that the original is the lighter or the darker version?

    The pic in o-review is the lighter version, but again these are all CGI and what they look like in real life may differ.

    Assuming that it's the same Dark Amber as the Ink Collection Hijinx recent release, then the colour is quite light.
    Think: the mosquito trapped in amber in the exposition video in Jurassic Park.
