There is no published guarantee. No manufacturer that I am aware of will publish those numbers any more. Probably too worried about liablity. A good estimate would be 100,000 shots though.

Anyone know if the shutter in the K10D is the same as the K100D?

Pentax Japan: "The K10D incorporates a compact, lightweight shutter unit optimized for its large-size CCD image sensor. Designed by making several refinements to PENTAX’s time-proved electronic vertical-run focal-plane shutter, this unit offers much greater reliability than previous units. Even after years of use, it operates with the same precision and stroke as the first shutter release. Proven in numerous shutter release tests and subjected to exhaustive tuning, this durable shutter unit assures you of more than 100,000 shutter releases."
