New and Have Telephoto Question

First, greetings to all. I have lurked in the PF for awhile, but just registered. I have a K10-D (currently in Pentax's hands to fix a shutter problem) which I usually pair with a Pentax DA 18-250mm, f3.5/6.3. I love to shoot the architecture here in Chicago.

Looks like I will land an assignment that may pay for a K5 and maybe a high quality telephoto. I'm looking for a long telephoto to peer up into those skyscrapers, capture planes at the Air & Water show, and shoot the occasional wildlife. Any suggestions that will out-perform my 18-250mm?? Thanks. Bob

Welcome to the forum, it may pay you to ask your question in the Pentax Beginners Corner or the Lens forum where I'm sure you'll get the answers you require.
