Not really sure what your question is about but if you're looking for the upper and lower limits of the shutter speeds in any auto mode then the answer would be 30 seconds to 1/4000th.
Of course you can have the shutter open as long as the batteries last in Bulb (B) mode.

The speeds in between are:

Going from the camera the shutter speeds start at the longest first, 30" meaning 30 seconds:
30"25"20"15" 13"10"8" 6" 5" 4"3" 2.5" 2" 1.6" 1.3" 1" 0.8" 0.6" 0.5" 0.4" 0.3" then the speeds above 1 second 4 meaning 1/4th (slow) or 640 meaning 1/640th (fast)
4,5,6,8,10,13,15,20,25,30,40,50,60,80,100,125,160, 200,250,320,400,500,640,
800,1000,1250,1600,2000,2500,3200,4000

I have seen 100000 being quoted on this forum.
Do not know if that is an official Pentax number or not.
In any case, for me I will never get close to 1/2 of that.

Cheers

I'm at around half that on my DS and it's had no problems. Others on the forum have shot more.

That's for the K10D and that's been published in magazines too.
