K& and K5 are rated at 100000 actuations, YMMV though as it isn't guaranteed to last that long.
there is an older online database that shows K7s as high as 217000

pentax k7 | Camera Shutter Life Database
looking at the various data surviving models tail off at 200-250000 in most brands

no idea on leaf shutter reliability, but with service they can last for eons ( my recently serviced mamiya super 23 lens was made in 1968)
