A camera update would probably help too. I'd recommend the k-500 with the 55-300mm lens.

You may want to go to a weatherized camera if you are exposed to dust and rain. If so the K-50, or K-30 (if you can find one) would fit the bill along with a WR lens.
Do you have an idea about which focal lengths you use the most? A free program called Exposure Plot can help with that. How does the 55-300 work for you, and for that matter any other lenses you may have?

when im at track days im using the sigma 55-300 at its max length because cant get as close as id like to do find it a bit slow at times but that might be the camera as much as the lens i also use my tamron 18-200 but that i do use more when im landscaping and shooting sunsets
