Pentax 645D keeps working while 5D Mk11's fail

I don't own a 645D only a K-5 however reading JHolko blog on his recent trip to Antartica it was interesting to see that a number of 5D Mk11's failed yet apparently the 645D kept going.


The weather resistance and cold temps was high on my list for purchasing Pentax K-5. Looks as though it didn't let the lucky traveller in Antartica down either.
